Thread Name: BS: Why did you choose your nickname?
Subject: RE: BS: Why did you choose your nickname?
This isn't a nickname, but my own real one. When I first came on line (at a BB other than Mudcat), I felt it was important to give out my real name as a way of standing behind whatever opinions I posted. Particularly as a lot of the other posters in that place seemed to hide behind misnomers to feel safe when being snotty or giving grief to those who didn't deserve it. Since then, using my real name's gotten to be a habit.
