Sheesh. It's 2012, not 1812. If you sign your posts with your full name, 
you have to expect that people will call you "Mark" rather than "Mr 
Lawrence" or "Lord High Mucky-Muck Grand Poohbar Lawrence" -- even if 
they haven't been formally introduced.

Mark, we're all human and the occasional snark is only to be expected, 
but demanding that people ask permission to call you by your first name 
in an informal forum like this crosses the line to total dickishness. 
Chill out before you get yourself kill-filed into irrelevance.
