I come from an academic background, where one of the worst errors you can commit is to include anothers words or ideas with your own and not give credit to the author or the thinker who said it first. I do not do this to drop names.

On a related note, I often pass on information that others have given me, without commentary, in order that others may consider them. Thus, when you see in a post of mine "it has been reported" or "so and so says" I am merely presenting information for consideration.

Reading comprehension is crucial.

Feel free to drop my name any time. I am after all a highly regarded, well spoken self proclaimed expert in virtually every field.......

Looks to be correct, if somewhat convoluted grammar.

PS, If I knew your name I would drop it.

If by name dropper you mean pole smoker, then I've heard the same things about you

No matter what you are still a good kid, but you name drop name for appliance repair, I am very sure the DrFridge would be very happy if you recommended him.


Make sense

I told you that you cannot quote me without express written consent.

Don't be pissed because I sent my lawyers after ya.

Seriously, the 4xys end of the table was ANYTHING but academic.

However, feel free to "name drop" my name at random for anything you wish to say. You have my permission to completely and totally fabricate quotes, titles, and degrees to go along with my name in order to support your argument. It's cool man.

However if you do it in a paper you're screwed. Maybe.

ETA: You cannot however make up quotes that have something to do with me being gay, that's the only rule.

Just think of me as a named version of "They've proven...."
