Yes, I agree. I think there should be some sort of reminder that says *NOTE: Don't include any personal information such as last name, year you were born, etc in your username* when you sign up, if there isn't already one.

I agree, it should be included in the registration. I believe people are allowed to change their username under that sort of circumstance though. It is definitely something to be careful about. Great thread!

There is tons of people that will be born and name Kiki this year. Even if I put my month and day I was born it would be pretty hard to stalk m down just using my birthday. For all you know I could be sitting in New York or I could be on the other side of the country in California mabye even somewhere in between. There will be tons of Kiki's born today in the US not to mention other countries. What does it matter if someone finds out your age? If someone who is young enough to be taken advantage of is on this site then a parent would probably be watching what they are doing on the computer. Even the last name doesn't matter so even if my full name was Kiki K. Kiwi it would practically imposible to find Kiki K. Kiwi born on 9/9/09. Ease up a little gosh. Not everbody it out to get you. Yeah there are some creeps out there but I highly doubt that they are reading our posts, threads, and user names just to find out a sliver of information about us.
Using that logic, you wouldn't really need to buckle up because the chances of getting in an accident are so slim, but guess what? CLICK IT OR TICKET.

what you are talking about is tottally different than what I'm trying to say. think about it.... can I really find you with that info. Buckling up is the LAW. Getting in an accident is not really that slim of a chance. the only thing you shouldn't include in your username is your state and city. With that some one could find you but with a name and birthday no one would be able to tell what state, city, or county you are in. Like I said, buckling up is the LAW and that wouldn't be using the same logic. Not buckling up:criminal. Putting name and birthday in username: Get WI people mad. You see the difference? I'm not saying to just go do it, I'm saying it just doesn't really matter what your username is as long as it doesn't include your state, city, or county.
