surely people can be more creative?
why would John Smith for example, use his real name on here, as well as his DOB?
did he not listen to the internet safety assemblies at school? it just makes me worried for all you guys that use your real names - and then are making threads because they want to change their username

We can name ourselves whatever we want. The John Smith here probably isn't called John Smith irl.

It's like people putting pictures of themselves on here, if you do some nifty work and reverse image searches you could find their whole life story.

There's nothing I post on here that I wouldn't want people to find, so I'm not bothered

> internet safety assemblies at school


Literally nothing I learned at those things turned out to be true. When you're a kid you think there are people hiding in dark allies ready to give you drugs, when you become an adult you realise you actually have to pay for them.
