(I got this idea from a thread started by Yesterdog in MPSIMS. I hope he doesn’t mind. )
What are some of your other internet identies, past or current?
I have been Misnomer for at least 3-4 years now, and am currently using this name on 3 different message boards. Sometimes when I’m registering somewhere I’ll discover that “Misnomer” is already taken, in which case I add numbers and/or letters at the end – the most common variation is Misnomer971. (I was quite pleasantly surprised when I registered here and discovered that ‘my’ name wasn’t already in use!) I kinda like this identity, even though it’s not very distinctive. I plan to keep it for a while.
My very first ‘alias,’ many moons ago, was Str8Frwrd. And one of my first “Misnomer” variations was Misnomer2U. Both of those were established before I realized that I really dislike it when numbers are substituted for words/sounds. :smack:
I have other internet logins, but no other ‘identities.’ I think it might be interesting to hear what identities some of you are/have been known by…especially those of you who have had a cyberspace presence for many years…
