Do I scare you?

Be honest! Do I really scare you with my new username: I Am Evil ? I don't understand why that is? You do know that there is nothing in the name, right? I am not going to explain or defend my name to anyone anymore. I am making it clear for the last time: It is my choice and I like the name. It's funny though. When my name was "The Innocent One", it worried / scared people then too. So, it's not the name is it? Anyways, I am in a good mood right now because of the rains and the cool weather. I even have the goosebumps from the chill in the air. And today, come what may, I AM going to finally start on my pending chapters. Wish me luck! And GOOD MORNING peeps! (Photo by Pixabay)

Frankly speaking, I don't like it. It attracts evil things and the vibe is not good. I am sorry for saying this. I am just being honest.

@Shavkat Aww!! Now you are being superstitious. I attract very good people and they stay. Name is just a name. Nah! Honesty is fine. Thank you!

@Daljinder ...A name is just a name...the Devil would still be a devil were he known by another name... logic from Shakespeare...

No, I am not scared by your avatar or by your username, but I believe that you can miss some views due to this.

I am okay with less views @LadyDuck Money or comments are not the issue. I know those who know me are not bothered. They know my implish nature by now. But it did surprise me that superstitions still exist and they aren't just confined to Indian borders.

@Daljinder In some cases it's not superstition... there are those "preachers" on the site that will never read something written by an "Evil".

Since you ask us to be honest.... HECK YES, YOU SCARE ME! I did ask you if I adopted you but you didn't answer me. Good morning, DJ! I do hope your day is going well!

@DaddyEvil I did answer you! On Wendy's post. You asked me there. I said that you once messaged me and your first sentence was: You are the evil one. I still have that message. My day is going fine! Hope yours is too!

@Daljinder LOL! I am sure I still have that message, too, since I haven't ever deleted any messages from my system! I haven't found the notification for that comment then. I will soon, I am sure... Good! I am glad your day is going so well! Yes, mine is, too... well, mostly. My allergies kicked in a little while ago. My eyes are swelling closed. My medication doesn't seem to be working. As long as my tongue/throat doesn't swell, I am still good, though!

I have read her discussions, Adam.... She seems to be as smart as my RL daughter... I am now wondering about that. @trivia79 She does manage to be a bit funny at times, too.... I think @Daljinder tries to copy me. Notice her horns? Mine are a little pointier, but otherwise look JUST like that!

@thesids I guess friends got used to me by now so they didn't ask. The friends that did ask did not ask for explanation. Just mentioned it. But those who don't know me well did ask why THIS name? So, that had me wondering about "superstitions".

@Daljinder I had a hard time looking out for you when you had first changed the display name... because my glasses were down. and I even skipped one of those notifications as it came in from someone with this display name "The Innocent One" believing it was someone I did not know here. Glasses back on, and now, I have no issues. As for the name, well, I believe, the rose will still be the same - same fragrance, same thorns(okay, this time I did not miss them out), the same symbolism for love, friendship - if it had another name. And why are you getting into superstitions?

I have no problem with the name. Avatars and sign on names are mostly a work of fiction and if you are anything like me you choose them by your mood at the time. On Facebook my avatar is the green witch from the new wizard of oz meme with the caption "not my circus, not my monkeys, my monkeys can fly." I changed to her after posting a cartoon character for a week on a dare. The sad thing is how some people perceive our choices. Someone had made a joke about a certain group of religious people. Most of the time I let these pass because I know it's just a joke but this one was morbid and in very bad taste so I felt compelled to say something. All I said is that wasn't funny. The person who said it came back and started what I thought was going to be an intelligent conversation but after I had answered the biblical question he had asked he called me a hypocrite because of my avatar. I just left it there and didn't respond anymore on that thread.

@savak03 Yes I change things around depending on my mood. I get fed up seeing the same thing daily. lol I like change! Ah! There has been some who has been saying bad things about a certain religion and their followers. Trying to get others to get in to their way of thinking. I didn't like it and they didn't like my logical take. lol

@Daljinder Well, if the person I was talking about was trying to start an argument he picked the wrong person. I will not argue about religion at all. However I am always glad to discuss it. Some people do not get the difference between argue and discuss.

You asked, so I'll tell you I don't like it. If someone announces they are evil, I tend to believe it. It does not scare me, just makes me wary. It's great if you are cool with it.

Eh, none of us are good (Luke 18:19). We're all sinners and so, logically, all "evil". Of course we can be redeemed but... Whoops. I'm probably getting too preachy. I also included a Bible verse so, yeah. Better get off my soapbox. Honestly, your picture makes me a bit uncomfortable. But I'm not "scared" of it. I hold to Luke 12:5 which says, "...fear him, which after he has killed, has power to cast into hell..." And since you don't hold that power... Dang it! Another verse slipped out. I just can't hold them in!

@divssri Yeah! I remember that. I was being mischievous (which I am almost all the time) when I changed my name. See we use this little devil here... when we are being naughty. So, why not "I Am Evil"? There is even an evil grin... I didn't see much difference.

@Sweetsona That is the thing I am trying to prove that name doesn't define anyone's personality or character. Let me properly introduce myself. My name is Daljinder Kaur. My nickname is DJ (both offline and online among friends). I had my name as my username before. But I like things to change a little so I changed it to this. It has been nice talking to you so far. Hope it gets better in the future. Also, thanks for the kind words.
