Member's names OK in questions?

Is it OK if I start a new thread directed at a member by name?

Like, if somebody wrote, " Hey Giggler, why do people stand in line for BBQ in Austin Tx?"

Or "Dear X, why the heck is clam chowder so much better in Boston?"

I think there is a way to PM people directly, but half the fun of this list is to get all the other viewpoints. Like " BBQ is for suckers" or something funny!

Eric, Austin Tx.

Sure, unless the Member is offended.

And there is always the possibility that the particular member questioned might be gone for weeks.

OK, I'll ask a ? RF. I've always wondered why your screen name is roadfix. I know you don't fix roads for a living. Just curious.

During my serious cycling days I rode a fixed gear bicycle on the road. My username was roadfix on cycling forums. I also use that name on other, non-cycling related forums as well.
But these days I ride my mountain bike on trails..... it's a lot safer not riding on the streets. But I'm still roadfix.
