You read, therefore you’re–what, exactly?

I’ve been thinking for some time now that “PGPoA readers” is an incredibly dull way to describe such a wonderful, if eccentric, lot as you all. So let’s come up with something better!

List your suggestions in the comments below, and I’ll have you vote on the best of them in the next poll. If any of you come up with the winning suggestion, I’ll send you something nice. I don’t know what yet, but it’ll be cool, I swear.

The ideal term will be clever, but not so strange as to make it unclear what it’s referring to.

Here are a few of my own ideas:

  • PGPals
  • PGPeers
  • PGPeeps
  • Little Poe Peeps
  • Pointers
  • Articulates
  • PGPoA-holes (just kidding)

  • We're not voting yet.

    But you can certainly make suggestions, and I don't care if you vote when the time comes. And yes, you're a Power Pal 😉

  • Poe folks? (Because we spend too much on toys.)

    Poe-sers? (I mean, we "pose" our action figures, right?)

    OK, seriously…

    I like PGPeers. I also like dwaltrip's suggestion (in either spelling).

    A variation on your first idea (and a nod to Douglas Adams): Poe's Plastic Pals (or PPP, 3P, etc.).

  • I'm fond of "The Articulated Many". Hm… no, wait, that would be for my site.

    How about "Ravens" for the poetry angle.

    My other idea has already been suggested, which is "Poesers". I would love to be called a Poeser any chance I get.

  • You people are too funny! I will have to have half a bottle of wine to come up with anything remotely funny!

    And Poe's Dad's nickname is PoPo!

  • And Poe’s Dad’s nickname is PoPo!

    True! But to be clear, it's what his friends (jokingly) call him, not any sort of nickname from us kids. It's a long story, and unrelated to my own handle…


    @Poe: Finally got to say hi to your dear mother! I seriously thought it was some crazy kid acting like your mother. LOL LOL Again, really cool you have a great family behind you! 🙂
