Why do people have made up names on internet forums?

I mean I can understand anonymity, but why don't we have real names like Betty-Sue or Dwayne? :ponda:

Because if you had names like that people would automatically think you were a single mum living in a trailer park or some call of duty dope puffing loser? With a makey upey name you can be whatever you want to be and it add to the mystery and intrigue. :O

Because names like 'The Rock' sound so much cooler than Dwayne. :yup:

Possibly. :coffee:

What do Bats Eat?

If you’ve ever wondered what do bats eat, you might be surprised.

Some bats have evolved to eat smaller vertebrate animals, such as mice, fish, lizards, and frogs.

I remember my mum saying she ate frog legs once...

Didn't like them. They were like eating rubber. Preferred snails.

I very rarely use the name my parents gave me, even in every day life , preferring Oz , a name I came up with which crystallizes what I'm about.
Another question is why people don't reveal their location here.
Perhaps it's particularly a truther thing . We're suspicious of any thing that even looks remotely like authority , asking ,"what's your name , where do you live"
