    I don't like it. Not that it's happened.
    If I want you to know my name off the boards, you'll know it. Which also means, I'd only want people who I tell to know it.
    I like to keep my personal life and problems as removed from the board as possible.
    If it ever happened, I wouldn't flip out however.

    As it is, plenty of people know my real name thanks to PMs and IM. I just don't like to advertise is all.

    My name is Paul too. :D

    I choose the "not really" option. Although I really prefer for everybody to call me Shredder, I don't neccessarily make a big fuss when someone doesn't, although I usually tell them that I prefer not to be called by my real name.

    It's a little weird when some people do it that I've never heard of before, but I don't really mind. I'm happy being called droideka though.

    It doesn't bother me, since my first name is part of my username. However, it is weird when people I do not know call me Jefffffffffffffff.

    Even though its in my profile, it depends on the person. But I think must people know me as PK regardless of my actually name.

    I know from talking to Amos and a couple others on the phone, they call me PK and not Sonja, kind of silly. But meh no biggies.

    ~PK~

    Doesn't really bother me either way - like Chris said ( :p) if I was really concerned about it I wouldn't have it in my profile. ;)

    Depends on their motives. [face_mischief]


    But I've talked on the phone with JCers, before I can get a word in they ask how to pronouncew my name so they don't butcher it. Completely understandable. :p

    I thought I did. :(

    Generally I don't mind people calling me Hope although I answer to Hope or to Jada . . . even Wench :p But then again, every once in awhile it irks me. But in those occassions I just pull out my ParticularlyMeanSith sock and scare them :p

    My name's not in my profile. The only people who know it are people I've explicitly told. And even then, everyone is so used to calling me Yubs or Yubsie or some other variation that that's what they use. :p People honestly forget that it ISN'T my real name. :p

    Sure, I don't really mind. It kind of personalizes everything I suppose. I don't care if they use my name or user name- it's all the same to me.

    I'm fine with it, that's why I chose Ben to be part of my username, also it corresponds with my favorite Star Wars character.
