Because when your employer/potential employer googles your name because it is easy and standard, I don't want them to know I am a risk-taker. That comes later, after I have established my reliability.

Duh.

I had a name. Or at least I assume I did. But things get complicated after enough turns of the wheel, and one forgets... So I just get by as best I can, and don't worry about who I might have been when I was a real, living being.

If that don't do it for you, well, I've climbed with a lot of the people who populate this place, and they can tell you whatever name they gave me.

Tami calls me Davey, for whatever that's worth.

Always allow anonymous voices. You can choose not to be offended and to ignore others who are negative, and its those anonymous voices that sometimes spark the best ideas.

Pud is a spiritual name from the early Roman days.

To "pud" was to give of ones self without expecting anything in return.
You could say someone was "puddable" if he/she was known as a helping individual.
A "pudder" was only helpful sometimes.

Not everyone liked to be "pudded" but everyone loved "pudding"

Dig it, Plaidman. But for a while, Batman WAS called The Batman.
Seriously. In the comic books.

I am not a comic book character. Just A character.

I'm easily discoverable to registered users (via my email address, which I've used for decades in many different 'net contexts), but my screen name does provide a bit of obfuscation to folks who aren't registered. That's the line I've decided upon. Seems to work so far.

my guess is that Roger Brown is 60 or older, thus his confusion over proper use of the internet.

ps Roger you have the most boring name ive ever heard, you should seize any opportunity to call yourself something more cool.

Didn't a climbing rag editor give Dingus his moniker which he gladly adopted? Maybe my memory fails me at this advanced age...

Not all people using screen names are hiding. I used one when I signed up thinking that was the protocol. Yet, I've never hidden who I am. My 'real name' has been posted here a zillion times.

^there is no button, but it is there. Interestingly enough it is called "About Us" - I looked at it over a zillion times

yo Crimpie, yo tam bien

had to look up a zillion

was informed that it is "an indeterminately huge number"

since it is indeterminate then I'm safe in saying my name has popped up on the order of a zillion times

I don't use my real name because it ends up adding to my search engine results. I often times say stupid things or things that can be easily taken out of context on message boards that I'd prefer not be tied to my online persona.

My real name is readily available in my email address. I'm not hiding, just trying to look less psychotic.

For those who have been posting on internet message boards, forums, or commenting on online news articles for more than a year or two and consistently use their real name, do a Google search on your name. You might be shocked, delighted, or impressed with what you find.
