I agree that you shouldn't say personal information. But it's also hard to chose a username that hasn't been chosen. Don't get me wrong, I'm not for giving out personal information at all, but I think what people chose for their username is up to them.

REMEMBER: NEVER GIVE OUT PERSONAL INFORMATION!


Thanks for looking at this.

Oh, and i also saw a username like this (again, not the actually username)

sallysuesmith

(p.s. I am not a rep moocher, I just wanted to point this out)

I agree that no personal should be given.


However this ID might be a sister's, close cousin's, best friends, and etc....personal information and not theirs.

So what I am trying to say is even though it appears personal and it may be something as simple as a kid using a combo of various loved one's info, or a specific loved one's info... just for the sake of remembering easily. Just a thought

There is another problem with user names like this. Not only do they give out personal information, but they make it a lot easier FOR PEOPLE TO STEAL YOUR ACCOUNT! I have heard very sad stories of people losing their pets and lots of great rare items because someone figured out how to hack their Webkinz account. Great thread - thanks for the reminder.

yes, but predators are SMART! Like if i had my username like that and i was on WI, a predator might be able to track me down. It might take a while but you could be suprised what they can do with such little info! They did a presentation at my school on it. A predator tracked a girl down by knowing her birthday (mm/dd/yy), the state she lived in, and her little brother's name. It's bad.
