    A few people on mybb use the same nicks in the gaming community and I have met them through there, so its kind of indirect.

    I mean people you know in real life finding out your myBB persona.
    Yeah one. I realized who he was first and tortured him with hints on the forum until he finally figured out who I was.

    lol, I dont understand the great need for anonymity. Do people generally not portray themselves online as they would be IRL?
    Are you not "yourselves" haha/

    and no, it wouldnt bother me in the least if someone figured me out. What you see/read is what you get.

    We are our real selves online, that's the problem. Wouldn't want my boss/colleagues to know me on that level.

    haha, I have nothing to worry about, because I am not the only person to use the nick "garyvdh" ... so If you try to google me, you are likely to bump into several different versions of me!

    I sure hope no one has figured out who Sly21C's really is. As far as I know no one knows my real name, it is possible though that someone knows me in real life but has kept quite for now.

    Edit: I don't know anyone on mybb in real life.
