It's OK. Everything you said is true about ID theft. But I think a first name is probably OK.
If you didn't see Superbad, it's pretty funny.
Logic dictates that no one would really post their ID on a forum... but how logical IS the forum?
My nickname is Al. :3
I own two or three domains and don't want to pay for whois screening, so my contact stuff is out there anyways.
I hate both of those names, but it is what's on my birth certificate.
My name is Victoria but I prefer Tori! :D
My real first name is James
my Real Name is Gil
My real name is and has always been in my sig. Names arent meant to be secret, and unlike some I have nothing to hide. I dont live in fear and my name is already out there anyhow. It wont be long until its impossible to 'hide' ones ID. Pretty soon I think are brains are all going to have a mac address lol.
Sarah, but I love and prefer my middle name which is Antoinette.
My name is Sam.
According to the Military, I am Fireman Sidor. But you all may know me as Lucas Martin Sidor. My last name is pronounced the same as Apple 'Cider', so some of my fellow shipmates like to just call me apple lol.
As far as getting doxed goes, i wouldn't recommend anyone looking too deeply into me. Due to my job and Top Secret security clearance, trying to search me could end up with whomever it may concern getting involved with people they'd rather stay away from. Happy hunting! ;)

Real name is Nick, I dislike giving it out but eh, why the heck not, right?
Just like a fellow member here on AF and my moirail, @blueangel06661 and I share the same name.
The thing is, I really prefer to be Victoria. Honestly, I don't like being called Tori. Between Vicky and Tori, I can tolerate Vicky.
But then there's getting a new SS card, updating all of my credit cards/bank accounts, notifying my employee so they can change my tax forms, notifying both of the colleges I attend, re submitting my applications to both colleges for my FAFSA, a new license. Also, in NYS, it's part of the name change law that I need to take out a newspaper advertisement informing the public of the name change; it's a dying media form, so it's not that expensive. It's still cost prohibitive to me though.
Edit: Actually, I forgot, I don't live in New York City anymore, so it's actually ~200 dollars for a name change for me.
im abigail. i posted my name cause i trust everyone here. you're all like brothers and sisters to me.anyway, nice to know your names everyone. ^^
