given it's his name and he says so, i'm fine with switching, but in my head i'll still say nath. if i ever meet him i'll have to not **** it up. i'm somewhat sympathetic given my own name.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

Wait, I haven't been following along, he pronounces it "Nayth" and "Nath" like Math?

Also, lol @ ever switching to jif unless you mean from Peter Pan

I mean we don't have a really solid metric to use here and English (and an old Gallagher bit) is full of funny pronunciation rules (tomb=toom, Comb=cOm) but I can't see many people jumping to Nayth when shown "nath" on a flash card or something.

Well there's two problems there, I've never met anyone irl that pronounces it Jif (admittedly small sample) and Jif is ****ing ******ed and still the name of a goddamn peanut butter, so yeah, Gif

I mean, Kid Colin (and not Kid Colon) coming down on the side of obscure pronunciations is really odd.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog and Pronunciation Guide

if he does go by nayth instead of nate IRL, that's bizarre but to each his own

relating to the screen name, when pronouncing it, i could not give two ****s about what one's IRL name is, and it shouldn't matter anyway since the only time it's being pronounced is inside people's heads as they're reading the forum
