      You won't believe this, but I really appreciated this response for an
      Off Topic issue. In an email to a sister, I had refered to our neice
      as "MK". What I got back today was an email explaining to how to
      properly make "Meg Catherine's" initials. It kind of blowed the
      chain of conversation and, admittedly, set me off, since I do know my
      own neice's name and she obviously knew who I was talking about. The
      problem is that I can't spell well (due to a flaw in my education).
      It is not something I enjoy being reminded of regularly. Especially
      when it is a "mis-type" rather than me not actually knowing what I am
      saying (even if I don't spell it all correctly). I had even quit
      emailing some family until I had run spell check to circumvent this
      regular occurance. So your tactful response has helped me recover my
      earlier jolly mood.

      And for the record, I was absolutely, positively sure what kind of
      hive you were refering to. (Wasn't it a Lang-top hive? Just kidding.)
      If we are going to shorten the name, do we use a hyphen at the end or
      a period?

      Regards, Coyote
