> > He's got this whole internet/mental health/axe murderer thought association going on. :)
> Ah yes. Well, I’ve never owned an axe, so I’ll just have to fit myself into the first two categories.

> Funny... I can’t help remembering an occasion when I went out to put something in the trunk of my father-in-law’s car, and when I opened it there was nothing in it but a pair of women’s shoes and an axe. I was intensely curious, but didn’t like to ask questions... As far as I know, though, he has no mental illness and doesn’t post on Babble.

You showed great restraint!

> I would never think you were taking advantage. And I know that what I was asking before would be something sensitive, and that not everyone could respond. That’s the joy of babble, isn’t it – even if we’re not able to respond to every post, there’s usually someone who feels up for it. And you’ve helped me a lot too. So don’t go thinking about taking advantage or stuff like that!

I've long felt that that *was* the joy of Babble. That the responsibility of reciprocity was spread to many, so that you can give and take as you can or need.
> > Oh, I know. As I said, I bring your posts in frequently, and I've wondered as I've said your posting name the correct way to pronounce it. How's that for an easy start?
> It’s not my name in real life, and I’m aware that there are two ways of saying it. I prefer a flat A (like the A in babble, hence Tahmar), rather than the other way (Taymar). I suppose it’s because it’s a Hebrew name (I think it means ‘date palm’) and so I like it to sound like the original, with a flat A. But if you prefer to say it ‘Taymar’, that’s fine too! Obviously, with my penchant for Hebraic names, I like your posting name as well! I sometimes wonder if you chose it for its sound or its meaning or the stories associated with it.
Ahhh. I figured you were named after that Tamar, but that didn't help much. I read better than I pronounce. I actually got in a major disagreement with my Sunday School class when that Tamar was classified as one of the Bad Girls of the Bible. I ended up bringing in a copy of the commentary to the Torah to the Sunday School teacher. :)

I also love Hebraic names, and most of the names I was considering if I had a daughter (other than family names) came from that source. But "Dinah" has a far humbler beginning. "Dinah" is named after a dog. :D
