It's a good title but not a good username.

Believe it or not, it's currently the best username on this board.

Who has a good username, plat? What factors go into determining what is or isn't a good username?

It's like pornography. A good username is whatever gives a judge a hard on.

You do, for one

A good username has phonetic harmony, is easily truncated for convenience or as an affectionate nickname (Argo, chud, plat, Ruddo) and captures the spirit and overall style of the poster. "Birds in Hell" has none of these qualities. It's a good title for a movie or a book or a song, but not for a spenno. spenno was perfect for spenno.

Spencer is always mining the world around him for sound. "Birds in Hell" is one graceful bit of word noise, you have to admit. It's a near perfect username.

It's one of those phrases that you can hear and see in some sonic sort of way. It's like this orange and blue fire ball that hisses and screeches across the screen when you read it.

It doesn't even fit spenno. He's more like Birds in an Elevator, or Birds in a Waiting Room, or Birds Doing Groceries, or Birds Lying on the Floor Listening to Guitar Feedback.

Birds Ascending, Birds Waiting, Birds Grocery Shopping, or Birds Scattered by Sound all seem like better options for what you are proposing.
