Saw Kerst's thread about whether or not people prefer being called by their online name or real name when gaming and it's got me thinking, are you okay with people calling you by your real name online? I mean anywhere online, gaming, cr, facebook, twitter, etc.

I'm not tripping of whether or not most people call me by real name, though I have no problem being called "Tricked" or "MJ" either.

Fine with it. My name is what people call me, that doesn't change online if people would prefer it that way.

Funny thing is when I created my first online account, I use irl name.. I never thought about it.. Its a habits from playing console rpg where I alway use my irl name on the main character.

But nowdays I use fantasy character name instead of my irl name haha.

I'd prefer to go by a screen name, but I'm okay with being called by my real one.

I'm fine with it. Whenever I PM someone or contact them directly, I always sign with my name. And I actually rather expect my friends to call me by name, whether IRL or online.

in truth i don't think it would affect me much but i do like some level of separation of my online life and my non online life i probably wouldn't have a problem if some of my online friends knew my real name but strangers less so

I feel a little uncomfortable when people use my real name online unless they know me offline. If they choose to use my real name I don't really worry about it though.

I usually prefer online names unless I'm comfortable with the people I'm talking to. Usually when I'm in parties on xbox or playstation, even with people I know in real life, I'd rather they call me by the online name instead of my real one.

I hate when people call me by my real name online. I have a very fine line between the online world and reality because of how long I've been here. That's one of the reasons I don't have any social media. People probably won't ever call me by my name anyways. I don't give anyone my name online anyway so it doesn't matter. It irritates me when I'm playing a game and some guy is just like "HEY WHATS UR REAL NAME" though. It's always one of the first questions they ask too.

Just my first name. I will leave my last name out. My first name is very common name. I'm not too worry.
