Thread: Has anyone ever found out who you are from myBB

Hybrid View

    Default Has anyone ever found out who you are from myBB

    This applies to the people that prefer to remain anonymous.

    Has anyone in "real life" ever figured out who you are from myBB? ever worry that friends/colleagues also use myBB and might figure out your identity?

    Yes - my dad.

    I discussed something with him & he proceeded to Google it...and found a line of reasoning at #1 of the results that was fairly novel & 100% identical. *sigh*

    Kinda. Nothing super sketchy is connected to my HX identity, but I do tend to be a bit more vocal online than in real life - so it would be better if it were not connected.
    Man walks down the street in that hat, people know he's not afraid of anything.

    I prefer to stay anonymous but there are a few people that know who I am.

    I know a couple of MyBB'ers... a few know who I am too ^^

    Anonymity perhaps the better policy.

    Just to clarify : I don't mean making friends on myBB and then meeting them etc

    I mean people you know in real life finding out your myBB persona.

    Oh... I often just tell people I know myBB ID if they ask during a conversation or such... not a big deal the known quantities and there is nothing I do or say here online that is any different to how I am in flesh & blood land.

    It is the unknown quantities online that the anonymity a MyBB persona serves as a buffer to...

    Yeah one. I realized who he was first and tortured him with hints on the forum until he finally figured out who I was.
