Your fans are allowed to be upset about that.

    Completely agreed. I love nameberry, I own a lot of the books written by Pam and Linda and use them frequently - that being said, I find a lot of the descriptions to be VERY wrong and hurtfula nd to not recognize that is just going to lose you people who would otherwise enjoy nameberry - you can only overlook blatant homophobia and such for so long before you have to stand up and say something.

    I really appreciate it, thank you. I just wanted to say that while I understand that you guys try and keep things light-hearted and sure - it's your right to list you opinions - saying things that are hurtful to one group or another is not going to do any good for anyone. You are in a position where you are in the public eye, what you say is read by people from all walks of life - being aware of this and trying to be sensitive (not overly so - don't walk on eggshells - but not saying things that are out right homophobic) is only going to give credit to yourself and your work.

Usually, if Berries don't like a name, they opt for an NMS or a kindly worded but honest answer.
    Yahoo!Answers is pretty much a joke anyway.
    It's always my number one choice I'm in the mood to hear a bunch of kids to slate my favourites and make unprompted suggestions of 'Taytom' and 'MyKynlie' instead.

    I used to belong to Yahoo Answers and it's sad that I could always tell berries or similar from other naming boards in comparison to the other members, it was a little comical.

    Haha, me too. It's pretty easy to spot Allegra and Julian in amongst Shaynna, Brailee and friends.
