Q: What does the word "Guppie" stand for?

A: The Guppie (or Guppy) is a well-known sort of Gold fish. I took the nick "Guppie" as a joke on my lousy short-term memory.


Q: What is your background?

A: For fear of the IOA I will not reveal any personal information, but I can tell you (some) of my political standpoints, so you can catch me writing POV statements more easily: ;-)
I'm an environmentalist, an anti-capitalist, (although a liberalist of the Thomas Hobbes kind), an anti-communist fascinated by communism and a christian (although beliving in natural science and evolution).
