What's in a User Title?

We had the thread talking about User Names, but what about User Titles?

Some of your user titles are relatively easy to figure out:
Shadetree Engineer (Tango Charlie)
It's A Laughing Matter (ROFL_Box)
VIVA LA MPG RESISTANCE (Will)

While some make me wonder:
Lurking footless halls (Silveredwings)
CAUTION: May Stink!!! (BlackDeuceCoupe)
Misanthropologist (captainslug), i know the term, but the reasoning behind it is what i wonder about.

So I guess I'll go first.
Empty Pocketed Ecomodder, I drive a Jeep, and Jeep Enthusiasts know what Jeep stands for - Just Empty Every Pocket.

All things in moderation... Even moderation. (paradoxical statement...)

Not surprisingly, it makes people (new users, usually) think I'm a mod or admin. I suppose, for someone who didn't read the FAQ, the red star would only reinforce that thought.

When I almost didn't pass inspection because of my kammback I should have taken it off. Instead, I decided that it will do more good on the car than laying around in the garage, so I'm an aero guerrilla until I legalize my mods (or at least try to), like Home Power's solar guerrillas.

My previous User Title was Monster under my bed, from a Santana song.

I believe that the forum software doesn't allow User Titles like 'Moderator' or 'Admin', unless you are one. But your's seems to slip past the censor. I like cfg83's 'Pokémoderator', which in his case is right on.

I guess I should change the standard tag line on my profile

Yeah right - there's bugger all real mods on the car for the moment
Even the makeshift grille block is gone - don't want to give Volvo an easy scapegoat for my DPF troubles.

Speed up! 60mpg is fine.

The long form would read something like, "Getting great fuel economy doesn't have to mean driving slowly, as long as you select the right tool for the job, modify it, and drive thoughtfully."

Also, I view 60mpg (or more realistically 50mpg) as a very achievable goal for anyone to meet.

I'd rather have less horsepower and more MPG.
