I'm fairly sure this is mentioned once (or more) a year. It never happens.



Yes, I know it never happens. As cool/ghey as the names are, it would be nice for people to step up with some integrity that using ones own name brings. Regarding the issue of spam, most of it has some crazy name so you see it for what it is right there.

I used to be a proponent of using real names, but now I'm glad it's optional. While there are some advantages to using real names to keep the weirdos away and at bay, I think we can handle it and people who prefer anonymity should have it. Like someone said, pretty much everyone who uses a screen name is known by their real name to probably a handful of the old-timers. I'm no old-timer here, but a couple of people who prefer to use screen names have told me their first names in PM, and like that. I think the fact many people use screen names actually might help things from getting too serious around here.

Note, a "none" in your styles field will no longer be accepted. if you have never learned a style, you should write "Looking for a style" or "interested in taichi" etc.
