    Re: Personal names...

    Well obviously it doesn't matter to me...my real name is my username. I prefer it like that. But I agree with others...if some want only their screen names used, then that is fine.

    Re: Personal names...

    I don't mind my first name being used. My screen name is a little bit long and sounds silly when used in person. DB works just fine though.

    Within the last couple of months someone posted my last name here on MC and I got a little freaked out by that. I sent the person a PM and asked her to edit her post, which she did. It was not meant in a malicious way, but I was still really uncomfortable about it.

    Re: Personal names...

    I don't mind people here calling me by my first name since it is common. I would not like it if they mentioned my last name in public though.

    Good post Wolfy .

    Or me!!! Honestly, I've used my irl name in my sig at bigger message boards, along with pix of my kids or myself. It's not a big deal to me, but I respect those who choose to not share.

    I took my kids to a Letterboxing gathering a while back, it was weird to be called by my trail name all day. On the other hand, we do Ren Faire, and it's not weird to be called by my Faire name during the day!

    I love how this thread turned into a thread all about me.

    Matt, O'nut, Tammy, it's all the same.

    Re: Personal names...

    It is good etiquette not to use the "real" names of others on a message board, however, I don't mind too much when my first name gets used.

    Re: Personal names...

    I don't care if people use my real name if they know it. It takes awhile chatting with people before i'm ok with them calling me by my name.
    I might hate my name, but sometimes people refer to me as a male when they see my SN, so I don't mind if they use my real name.
    • There are 191,671 people in the U.S. with my first name.
    • Statistically the 319th most popular first name.
    • More than 99.9 percent of people with my first name are female.
