Why do people use them? I know on most of the boards that I've been on awhile, I actually perfer my real name being used. Any thoughts?

Well,

There are many reasons. I myself do not mind people knowing my name or calling me by it on the forums, but some folks do have a need for more privacy, whatever the reason so I will use screen neames unless I am sure real names are ok with that person.

Ya'll can call me Dennis:)

I just use my real one unless it's at a place like E-bay or Aquabid. It's easier for us older people to just remember our own names. :wink:

Ya'll Dennis? I thought you lived out east - or are you a transplant?

I tend to use my real name on plant sites but definately don't use it on any other types of site. Those reef folks are FREAKS! :)

True, but while I am from the sticks in Ohio, where people would consider themselves southern, we are about as southern as a Yankee fan. Ont he other hand, we are about as ******* as it gets;)

The wonderful thing about screen names is one can choose their own. I don't really care for my given name, so I don't use it unless I have to (some forums like real names).
