Guys, Harry hit me with this, and as I point out something, what if your don't want to post your full name? I am on afew other clubs and none of them have this rule at all. this is the first place I have ever seen it at. What about privacy? isn't only your first name good enough around here? It's kinda like PayPal and eBay wanting more and more. The first time I join up, it said "first name" so I put that. Now I get a PM from Harry wanting my "whole name" in my signature well.
I don't mind having my first name in there at all, and like I mention to Harry in the pm, people can always pm me. We do have lurkers out there and screw balls also I might ad ..

It's simple, the way I see it.
1. It's the rule.
2. I don't pay the bills to provide the forum.
3. Therefore, I don't get to make the rules.
4. Gregg pays the bills to provide the forum.
5. Therefore, Gregg gets to make the rules.
6. Gregg made the rule.
7. Therefore, it is the rule.
8. If I don't like the rule, I don't have to post here.
9. If I don't follow the rule, Gregg won't let me post here.
10. Because, it's the rule.

A "nom de plume"? I can see that. But if I create some new technique, or build a really great model, I'd want to get credit for it as who I am, not "firstname.lastname@example.org" - not my e-mail BTW I've participated in anonymous forums and I've seen people post some of the most abusive, rascist, bigoted nonsense when they don't have to stand behind a name. I won't particpate in a forum unless it requires real names.
How do we know all the names are real names? There is nothing keeping someone from using a fake name.

I understand what some of you are saying about this forum not having many members breaking the rules. It is a really nice place to post. However I am a member on a few different forums, (Starshipmodeler, Eagletransporter, ARC Air Forum, VintageBMX, BMXMuseum), and none of them ask for a full name. I consider those to be some of the best forums and they don't really have any 'bad' members. In fact each of those forums has members that have been around for quite a while and who post frequently.
Until anyone actually has been a victim of identity theft, you won't know how that can be. I've had that happen and trust me, it's no fun. The problem with the internet is that anyone can get any info they want if they have the know how. I don't even have a Facebook account. I only join the forums, where in most cases you can remain anonymous and only reveal your information when you choose to. I understand that adding a last name is the rule here but how does anyone know if the last names here are actually the person's last names?!

I must admit that I really struggled to understand most of your post, Jim. However, if you get your identity stolen merely by someone having your first and last name you're being targeted by someone who has access to more information than just that to work with. Just that information, your name, is less than what would be in a phone book or any number of public-access information sources. Using the phone book as an example it has your address and (obviously) phone number too. The same could be said of a business card, or all sorts of other everyday items that might have your name where someone could see it.

What good is having a screen name if you have to also use your name as well.. it makes no sense at all.
