You were not the only one mystified by Kcurie's gender; the same applied to me. To kcurie's delight, I'm sure.

A lot of people assume I'm male when I use the shortened version of my name (Sam) and I have received a lot of post for 'Mr Sam ...' over the years.  Very few assume Sam is a female name when they are guessing.

I've learnt not to make assumptions about names like Sam. Kim is another. Ceri is a very common Welsh name for both genders.  It is hard to avoid making assumptions about gender based on the way people write.
