Yes, but it's a "poor man's Fleischkaese" primarily for those with a fondness for off-colour British television.

We now have edits in place to prevent new users from using their email addresses as their user names. However, we are now seeing an increase in new users using their real names. This is not a good idea because these users are sharing personal information about their health with the viewing public.

If are using your real name as your username, please contact SuperSleeper and get it changed. If you don't think this could be an issue, send me a PM and I'll sent you your snail-mail address to prove my point.

Another suggestion -- do not use the same user name, signature or avatar that you might use on other forums, or retail sites where you might write reviews. The CIA (Central Indiana Agent) can glean enough information to profile you.

I don't mind using similar or same usernames or even an email address for a username. It a question of restraint, say nothing online that you would not say in person, then you should be fine. People think they are anonymous, but little do they know and I have scared a lot of people by proving how open their lives are to anyone. As for emails, the email address you find on my account here is unique. There are sites that give you this ability and if you own your own domain, you potentially have unlimited email addresses. Nothing freaks out someone more than seeing their business name before the "@" symbol in an email address. And nothing stops SPAM faster than blocking a single address at your website console. Also helps to identify exactly who leaked your email address, no doubt.

In saying all that, sometimes you do need to help people help themselves, so well done for putting in some system controls to do this.
