   Apology accepted, and I understand where you are coming from,  
especially today.  I have been beating my head against a wall with a  
very old, very production-critical Sendmail installation since very  
early this morning.  I've practically got blood running out of my  
ears.  Today with end either with my victory over this recalcitrant  
piece of garbage, or my lying dead on the floor having experienced a  
brain aneurism.

   I'm sure everyone knows the name.  It is, at least according to  
how *I* was raised, generally considered polite and respectful to  
identify oneself using one's given name.  This is doubly true when  
asking a stranger for a favor.  You are not Professor Moriarty...why  
on Earth would you want your "full name" field to suggest that you are?
