I never got into the whole having a fake name or nickname on the internet thing, so I use my real name everywhere. There are a few places I only use my first name, but I'm not known as turbogeek42 or anything like that.

I've never cared much about the cons of using my name. What I say and what I do is what I say and do. I'm not really worried about it.
