Why do so many people on here have nicknames, or icons verses their real photos?
Hackers... the less they know of you the better for you.
well then why is your website posted on your signature?
(please forgive my ignorance)
It's already online - for many years. Here I might share private information. Besides, it reminds me to do what the nick says to do
Because we just want to have fun names and pics(avatars). And why we have nicknames is because some people don't want to have their real name reaveled. If you can read, please read under my new name what it says Dana Covert is my real name , but I just wanted a new name to reflect my walk with Jesus. Do you understand now?
My name is Michael, and Enterprise D is cool.
This is my real picture and my real name.. Ravindran is my name.. The rest I added to make the username unique I can understand others not using their real name or real picture.. It is simply for privacy reasons.. Being careful to not become a victim of any online scam! Better to be safe.. But I am okay.. I can take the risk.. Being in IT field, I know things I need to be aware of while being online.. Things I should share and things I can post without worries..
Based on your question, I am assuming that is your real picture and name..
Enjoyed reading your blog on right and wrong.
For privacy. I do not give out personal information online... you never know who you are talking to. Plus, I like to talk about private things anonymously at times.
Real name, real photo...although that picture was taken over a year ago...
I used to have a photo on a prior site. Just got tired of seeing my face.
Plus it is difficult to get / take a humble pic. This is a disucssion forum not a dating site.
WHAT? Not a dating site? All this time I thought...
You're too funny. Lol!!!!!
The Lord often changed the names of people to reflect the purpose He had for them. I think some like to represent their faith etc.. in these sort of things.
I do agree that our names do change -
(My last name reflects my walk with My God)
YOU ARE HYSTERICAL!!!
Yes it is sad but true - people too often mistake kindness as a way for others to be something God never intended them to be.
(an example -> kindness must mean, he/she likes me -> I need to date them -> even if they are suppose to be in one place, and I am suppose to be in a completely different place on this planet)
I have to agree ... to often people put their agendas before God's ... I know I did, but now I try not to ...
(Still a work in progress)
I agree .. that comment was too funny ... =)
Even if you get tired of seeing your face - when you post honest comments that are encouraging - I am sure your face becomes one that people can trust your input - =)
(Sometimes I get tired of seeing mine, but I also think there is a lot to see within a person's face)
Ya - Mine too =)
I can respect that -
I guess My fear is not about who they are, I used to be like that - and at times I do feel like I need to put up boundaries/walls with some people because of how they choose to act.
But I guess now - for me - since I really do love my God - I do not care, who knows about it - and I feel whoever touches me, touches the Apple of God's Eye ... (but it was a Long Time before I felt that way.)
So I understand and respect where you are coming from. =)
