    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.

    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.
