My vote: It's hilarious. But, that's after meeting Fred in person last week &
noting that, indeed, he -always- does all lowercase for his name, even on the
printed program (I'm sure there are exceptions, but there were none at the
conference). If I hadn't met him or seen all of this, I'd probably be
scratching my head. - MLD
