Go on then, most of you old folks probably guessed already, but it's me, substitute.
I asked the mods for a change of name under a new account, lot of water under the bridge with my old account, lots of stuff I don't want to be associated any more, things I said, things I was, opinions and views I held that are somewhat out of date, all colouring people's perceptions of what I write and making me feel sort of "forced" into playing a role or character that's quite far from who I really am.
They said yes, on the premise that I voluntarily outed myself once I'd "settled in". So, here you go.
That'll be all.
