Why in the world would I choose such an easy name to be attacked? Well, it isn't as obvious as all that...

I chose it years before — an independent chain of events led me to the “2003” (obviously several years before 2003).

The "Freedumb" part was a bit more conscious. It is a bit smart-alecky (which follows my personality), but also I wanted to convey the idea that I am “dumb” in terms of having so much to learn, from so many who know so much (I can't BEGIN to list those FReepers who have educated me and those who have schooled me).

I will take my arguments, and my knowledge, to the precipice with anyone — but, when I have been bested, I try to acknowledge that (difficult when I brick-wall myself into a corner but I somehow survive even those).
