Brings up an interesting socio-political question: are we only bartenders where we 'work,' or are we bartenders while we're "here," with limited responsibilties? In other words, are we bartenders only when we post in our designated forums? That idea raises for me a notion of 'jurisdiction', which seems to me better applied to sheriffs. Kidding aside: bartenders don't have 'off-duty' signs: people know who we are. It would be nice to retain the handle wherever we go, and avoid confusion.

I can move it and any sheriff can move it. The reason I haven't just moved it is because it started out as one thing and evolved into a discussion about why the bartender tag isn't on everywhere. It also could be discussed in the MO forum. But the original was you making a joke about all of the ranch hands who happen to be bartenders.
Hei bartendars, Not all bartendars are bartendars now! Possibly that will be fixed within a few days. Anyway, what i m observing is that now there is no difference between the rank of Ashik uzzaman & Thomas Paul outside J2EE/EJB & Other JavaAPI forums in JavaRanch....
