I'm called miniman because my surname starts with "mini" and that was my nickname at school. It is also a joke as I'm 6ft 3 and weigh rather a lot more than I should.
Why shouldn't we hide when we are getting dissed (I'm only ever wrong in DW's opinion)?

American is English but "not as we know it", a dialect rather than a foreign language, much as people in Scotland talk very different from my area. Does your version of American vary from PDS's?
