<span style="font-family:impact"><span style="font-size:18pt;line-height:100%">Register with your REAL name.</span></span> You don't have to use your last name, a simple "Sally J." will do. If your name is already taken, try "Sally of Boise" or Sally of *insert area here*"
We feel the site is much more friendly with real names, and as a moderator, I have rec'd many comments from members about how they like that we DO use real names.
It's hard to put a personality to "Okramangler" or such handles.
We also don't want to call you a boy if you are a girl
Hard to tell with names like *thelonecamper* or *burntmarshmallow*
You get the idea.
Thanks for your co-operation!
