Well, that is your (and their) choice.  I have no objection whatsoever to 
anyone wishing to refer to me as a Bard.  I don't call myself one, but I 
rather like it when someone else does.  It's an archtypal sort of thing.

Alas, I do know of some who are not R.N. to newcomers, but one tries to 
counteract their effect.  It's nice to be Really Nice to oldcomers, too.
