Titles are so unimportant.
Just a few days ago I told to my youngest son about me being hired 19 years ago, when during the paperwork phase HR at the new company had a problem figuring out what 'title' to give me.
I told them that 'Janitor' was just fine with me as long as they paid me.
I don't think I ever paid attention to the title they ended up giving me.

Members shouldn't answer questions from their phone while riding. That's how accidents happen!

I agree with others that it's just a title. Nothing important. I am happy to be a part of this group with lots of resources. You can delete my title, I don't use it for anything. It says "member". I think it's redundant anyway.
I'd rather go ride! (but am stuck at work with chance of TS today)

I used to post a lot and help with tech questions. Now I come here infrequently but still try and help. We all know who has the highest post count - lol

Why is common sense not so common

Why doesn't P.E.T.A. ever attack a biker

When you grow gray 'short hairs' you're a senior 'member'.
