Do you ever think of yourself by your Internet alias?
« on: February 12, 2018, 09:15:52 AM »
Not gonna lie, there's times I've actually called myself, in my inner monologue, Thanos. It's been my go to screen name for over half my life now, and by this point it's almost as much of a personal identifier as my legal birth name.

Anyone else?
Truten forever!

No, but that’s because my name here is pretty bland. I should have gone with something better, or one of my IRL nicknames but I wasn’t planning ahead.

No, but I get mad when friends of friends I've met through PSN call me "Mighty" or more rarely "Mightily"

CALL ME OATS YOU FUCKING IDIOT

No but my personal email has neogreenlantern in it and my old boss would call me Neo, NGL, or the green one.

Not with this one, no. But then I don't post a ton. I think I might have done so with my City of Villains alias way back when.

Not really.  It's a separate thing for me.

No, but that’s because my name here is pretty bland. I should have gone with something better, or one of my IRL nicknames but I wasn’t planning ahead.

Same.  I got this alias back when I was a teenager because I didn't care about thinking up a better one and it just stuck.

I read a lot of Robert E. Howard as a kid so both my aliases, Bran Mak Morn & Esau Cairn on KMC are characters from his novels.

I don't go referring to myself as them in real life but I often daydream of barbarian times or a world filled with monsters & maidens...

Hm. Well sections of it.  Considering its my damn initials and my nickname.  Still hilarious when someone tries to pronounce the screen name as an actual name and I have to tell them to use either or.
My negative Karma correlates to the amount of butthurt I've caused you!
