I don’t like being told how I am supposed to use technology, I like to decide for myself.
Same thing happened when I was a kid—I didn’t want to build a house, I wanted to build the Enterprise. SO?
I’d rather use a handle than my real name in some situations. Why can’t I?
I say some things under handles that I wouldn’t want connected to my real like. Nothing horribly mind you—but I like to keep my politics, religion and some of my wit separate from my work life. Because I do that’s why.
