Laurie, I completely agree about posting name variations. It helps prevent duplicate profile creation if nothing else. However, I think it's important to distinguish between true surname variations and mistakes, such as typos, poor spelling, and transcription errors. The latter are often too numerous to count. Moreover, including a mistake as a name variation is actually misleading... at least in my opinion. - Bill
