    Default The "whatever" confusion.

    We've been having problems with people confusing the compound word "whatever" with a user we have named "whatever."

    My suggestion after reading the dictionary is this: use the form "what ever" with a space when referring to the word, and the form "whatever" without a space when referring to the ESTP user.

    What do you think?

    I think whatever should change her name immediately based on undue hardship on the rest of the community. I refuse to put a space, damnit!

    It's much more fun to read some posts by people and deliberately confuse the two. I say keep it

    I don't want it, I just need it, to breathe, to feel, to know I'm alive.

    Never take life to seriously.. No one gets out alive in the end anyway.

    :yim_rolling_on_the_ I almost feel bad- except the fact that I'm laughing so hard!

    you can call me whatever you want to! I'm personally amused by the wordplay that my name allows for, but as long as you'e not using my real name all is good!

    We could just always refer to the user as a proper noun, too.
    Whatever as oppose to whatever.
    See the capitalization?
