Thing is, the people who could fuck with me the most already know way more than that about me. I just believe in not hiding behind a forum name. There's not many things I hate more than people who cowardly hide behind their internet anonymity while being an asshole to everyone.

Posting your name on the internet isn't brave or something, you aren't a valorous crusader because you chose to ignore your rights to privacy. There are many reasons (other than forum posting) to avoid posting your private information for the world to see and very few reasons to do so. "Well gosh people know it already IRL" yes well thats a very small circle of people who do as compared to potentially millions of others. It's also a fine thing to say as a grown man who has less to fear than say the girl in this story.

Anyway, did you read this story? The girl had her name hijacked by schoolmates who made a fake page full of false information and cruel insults. She didn't make a choice, they made it for her. She tried every other avenue but they didn't work so shes standing up for herself the only way she can.
