    Default Greetings

    Hello, all. Good to meet you(figuratively speaking, of course). joined your forum in the hopes of gathering some info (unlocking the mysteries of IV breeding) and sharing in some pokemon discussions. I hope we'll all get along well.

    It's more like Miss actually, I was just making a cheap mockery of Anime fan knowledge Japanese. She probably didn't know that meaning until right now anyway. If she can really speak and understand real japanese then it's OK, but most likely she's just using it like every other teenager who has watched enough anime to make the connection

    So? Who cares why she [/today's assumption] chose that name? She did and that's that.

    Not that i am aware of, mario, and if I were, i'm pretty sure that i would know. Are you related to the Mario in the video games?

    actually, while miss may be how most people would translate it, it is also used as a diminutive, informal suffix (like -ita in spanish).

    i picked it because it's a double-entendre play on words of the translated meaning of my RL name (which i won't share) and a nod to a running joke about said meaning my friends and i have (which, again, isn't really any of your business, and i won't share). thank you for such a sweet and warm greeting. I feel so welcome, but there was really no need for such a fuss, a simple hello would have sufficed

    someone want to tell me if there's a formal punishment for being a suspected teenage anime fangirl, or is the gentle flaming of my tender hide about it?

    Hi and Nice to meet you too, Ed. and i appreciated the defense, just because i didn't rant and curse like some ignorant teenage fangirl doesn't mean i was thrilled to be accused of being one by someone who *really* doesn't know me at all. I didn't really need the refresher course in the meaning of judgemental.

    She wouldn't need to if you hadn't decided to pick on her username, even as a joke. We all know that jokes can cause offence.
