Say my name
Posted 5/31/16
This is more of a rant! Here is my question "whats your name?" is that offensive or something?
if I ask your name it's not being nosey nope I'm asking so when I address you in chat or as my friend it's easier is that so hard to understand? I have encounter so many on here that complain about this what am i suppose to call you -"Hey Asshole?'' see my point it's for conversation purpose anyway if you get deleted don't feel butt-hurt.

Some people don't feel comfortable using their actual name online and prefer to only go by their username. That being said, I think it's not something to get bent out of shape about if you're asked that question (unless the other person is harassing you for your real name and won't accept that you won't give it out).

What's your name?

Doesn't seem like a big deal unless the person in question is a real creeper.

I typically give people my first name because Iberjib well it's not really a word.

I don't give out my last name though, that's for people I trust only.

I despise my name I was given and thus I don't enjoy people calling me by that name... I take it as an insult if it isn't required.

TBH, if I'm in chat with someone I expect to be addressed by whatever username I'm using in that chat. It's a privacy thing. In most places I've been online where folks tend to use a "handle" that isn't their legal name it's considered rude to refer to that person by their legal name if you know it, if there's any chance it's going to be seen or heard by people who don't already know them by that name, so most people just don't use it at all rather than risk violating someone's privacy by inadvertently sharing that info.

I mean, I won't be rude to someone who asks, but I might well say that I prefer not to say, and in many situations I will feel they've overstepped a boundary. Sometimes a time comes when it's useful to share that info, but if the interaction is just online where I'm already using some name, then that's the name I want to use.

Now here, on crunchy, I do use my real first name, but there are some places where I don't and if people called me "lorreen' in those places I'd find it a bit odd actually.

I wouldn't mind people using my name, although I usually give people a nickname so it's a mix of their name and username.

That's why if somebody ask me, I first give my nick (or a little bit shorter of it) and if the person after that ask for my real one i'll give that as well (but usually the nick is enough for them), but than I want the person to give their real name in return as well.
Some people can feel that he/she will have a disadvantage or unconformity if they give their real name, but don't feel bad about asking the name. If the person ok in head, than will reply with a good manner and give their name or politely say, "sorry but no, i'll rather stay with the nick".

People assume that I can track them down by their first name and uhhhh..... skin them alive? Hm
I guess it doesn't really hurt anything too much but it's nicer to have a name.
I make my name public for everyone to use. It's no big thing for me.
