One of mine too.
i dont like my real name, so i made up a hippy nick name that soots me, isnt my nick full of hipness!
Nothing says "hippie" like Joe.
My name is Mike. Or Michael. Boreing isn't it?
No, man. Mike's a good name. Hell, ya don't have to be named somethin' like 'Moon' to be a hippie.
Hi, my name is Amanda, but you can call me Mandi. Hey Marc, can I be in your clique? Let's get Althea to join us too...
Most people will say that it's because they talk to each other outside of the website, but I do think it is mostly to show that they are more familiar than average with someone. I find it annoying only because it is hard to follow who's saying what to whom in posts if you do not know the person's real name.
ah, you said the same thing sorry...
I understand where you are coming from with that, when I first got here I found it hard to follow at times but I didn't get upset, just confused and usually I'd say who's so and so, and someone would answer me. Also if you keep reading most times you can figure it out. I really don't know if I do that or not actually yeah I have, although I don't think I do it much and it is just a matter of when you think of the person you don't think of their username you think of their real name so that's what you type, also in a lot of cases it's just much easier to type the name than the username, but I don't think I do it much.
Basically I'm a lazy bitch and I type whichever is shorter. If I don't know their name and they're username is a hassle I try to post in a way that they will know I'm talking to them.
Can we call you Richard?
I used my real name as my forum name... y'know... to avoid confusion...

Separate names with a comma.
