Right on, FIndecanor. My real name is indeed Julius, as anyone who's ever done business with me here knows. An alarming trend in FInland is that people (read: assholes) tend to call girls named Julia 'Julle'. That makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. It's got the exactly same number of letters, and the syllables flow easily in Finnish. When you abbreviate Julius to Julle, you get rid of one syllable that's not very common in Finnish names. Thus, because of my nickname, some people think it's clever to call me Julia. If something ever causes a tear in the space-time continuum that destroys the uni-fucking-verse, it's this kind of dumb-fuckery.
So are you trolling the little boys on 2fort by saying that you are female?
TF2 addict here as well.
Nah, people just assume the second L is an I, and then jump to conclusions. It can be pretty intimidating to get horny hat trade requests from 12-year-olds. Most of them ask me if I want to see their unusual item
. Turns out they're not talking about TF2 hats when they're saying that. (For those unfamiliar with TF2: http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/Unusual)

Thanks a bunch, sir, it's very seldom I get to hear that. I guess it's considered "posh" or "nerdy" here.

Boy, but you should see me in fishnet stockings.
