    Why don't users use there real name, instead of calling themselves something silly?

    In this day and age it is too easy to locate people. Using your legal name is risky.

    Yeh, some nutjob might track you down and challenge you to a game...at work... home...Or they may just stop in to say hi and punch you in the face for claiming the skull...Who knows...

    Why didn't you? Chadbourne can't be a real name surely

    Its really very simple....

    I don't want to be Identified.


    If you know someones name, and where to look you can find out all sorts of things about them....

    for example:- Ever been in a newspaper? --finding that story will be easy...(most have large archives)

    married? -- I do belive those records are in the Public Domain, so I can find out where, when and who you married...Legally.

    ...and the list goes on....

    While it may all seem insignificant (and for the 'average Joe' it is) all this information could be of real interest to some wierdo/pyschopath stalker

    Very close. You messed up the last part though.

    I use my cat's name, but he doesn't know about it, otherwise i know he'd disapprove.

    i used a nickname my friend gave me freshmen year and it just stuck. i added the number though because i only like numbers that have evens as the first number and an odd number at the end but i dont like nething below 20 or above 30 lol. i'm weird like that.

    In my profile, you have informations about me, my family and my e-mails. I don´t see problems. But I don´t see problems in use of nicknames, too. It´s a question of taste.
