Who can it be knocking at my door?

When I was a kid, I hated my birth name. Hated.it. I always went by my nickname and would give you the evil laser eye of death if you called me by my birth name. Now however, I love it. It defines me. It’s who I am. So using another nickname when I changed urls was hard.

And you know what? I’m coming to realize that I really fucking hate it. I wonder how long it’ll last.

Well, and it’s not like you’re truly anonymous here anyway ’cause we know you. But blocking search engines and not pasting your name all over the place should help keep the riffraff out.

My “fall back” name is also well known (I use it for my IM accounts, etc).

You know…I’ve often thought about moving and removing my name. I can’t tell you how many times people find my site by searching “Camille”. It kinda creeps me out and makes me wonder who the hell is reading.

I know what you mean. It’s difficult online sometimes to remain as anonymous as I’d like to.

I have family members who know my site URL now (case in point: my mother-in-law…grrrr), and it really has censored me in the way I write, etc.

I can’t stand it, but at the same time, I have told them that if they (or anyone else out there on the net) decides to visit my site, then they have to deal with my views on things. It’s just a shame whenever problems arise.

I removed my tag board and only use a message pager on my site now that basically goes to an e-mail address, so comments aren’t visible on my blog/journal page, because every now and then someone would post some cr%p. I got tired of having to worry about it.

Anyway, hang in there. I’m just glad to see you are still here. :)

Maybe you and Camille could swap & your could be the RedHeadedBlogger and she could take over for you.

I grew up not liking it when people called me David. I thought it was stupid. Now as I get older, I’m not fond of the name Dave. Now, being called a moron, well what’s not to love about that?!?.
