Random post

I just saw this after browsing through a forum:


I participated in a comic drawing competition in my school and I recieved a merit award for my submission, better than nothing, I suppose.
I find it a little depressing (and amusing) how whenever I get the teensiest bit of publicity for my work, my name gets mispelled. I suppose an extra "g" is no big deal, could have been worse. Ying Ning, Yin Ming, Yin Ling, Ying Ming....I believe this was for Starz magazine, by the way.

You can always do it the American way and file a lawsuit. Next time, I'm sure contest or event organizers will mention issues regarding names in their disclaimer (i.e: the organizer of this [something] are not responsible for any mispellings or naming errors of participating individuals).
