Wish I had signed up for the beta

I just started to read some of the beta testing content. Yikes!!!!

Some of the conversations are really making me crazy. I just read one about asking for AKA to be expanded to include a surname field.. This is so wrong, AKA should be removed and everyone should start using NAME, this is what it was ment for. Someone in the thread said they use it for married name... NO NO NO! Add another NAME for the married name.

If the development staff of FTM take this suggestion I'll know for sure that they don't have a clue. AKA was a workaround added by software companies that only had one name field and did not want to redesign their software to have a 1-M relationship in the database.

Saw a couple of other crazy requests but this one really got me mad. Sorry for the outburst!
