I started out using my actual name on the internet (1985), and even on the www (1995) but after doxxing (which wasn't called that then), and other strange attacks of various kinds, as well as realizing there are some seriously fucked up people and stalkers that use the www to do their thing, I have used aliases.

Except where I still use the name on my birth certificate.

My current avatar is just a funny animated gif that makes me laugh and also is sort of disturbing.  Much like most of what I read online.

My username is an anagram of my actual name.  I haven't set an avatar, but if I did it would be extremely clever and witty.  You would be so impressed you would be compelled to set it as the background on your phone and computer.  I can't handle that kind of fame, so I refrain.
