Panda - unless something someone says triggers a bad memory, i think most of us are good with accepting one another the way we want to be seen - the way we present ourselves. so the fact that you have been very forthright in your intro is good. those who have read it will know up-front where you are coming from. that being said - you may need to clarify or explain from time to time if confusion arises.

but welcome, anyway.
hope your experience here is a positive one.
