    Default False name with friends?

    Do you use a false name, or a false identity with friends you've known at least 1 year or more?

    I gather that it's paranoid trait to do this.

    I've mildly suspected this of some of my friends.

    I've personally entertained the idea that I might do it in another country.

    Mostly I've thought that my idea of individuality and anonymity might best be served by telling just little enough.. not by falsificating anything that's real.

    Web pseodonymity is another thing.

    So what do you know? Have you ever convinced another person that you were of different name, in real life?

    Web incidents have nothing whatsoever to do with this query. We all know that you can pretend to be anything you want on the web.

    Do I send you the bill for the new keyboard I'm going to need when this water ruins it?

    Outside of nicknames, I've never done or experienced that. Either that, or they're still fooling me and doing a real good job of it.

    Though I did get a drunk phone call one night and he tried to convince me that he wasn't the person I thought. being that it was 230am and he woke me up, it wasn't that hard. "Sam" my butt... >.>

    I don't see how you could do that and have a social network of friends. Eventually, someone is going to know someone and you're just going to forever break the trust of someone toward you.

    I once introduced myself as "Joseph Stalin" to a chinese immigrant. I actually ended up being good friends with him, so it was really awkward telling him thats not my name after many months of him going "Joseph Stalin!", but he just laughed.

    As you can see from the name I chose -- I'm just too transparent to make up any ol' name. I can't even imagine.

    I have not only done this but have had it done to me before. Back when I was in High School people were always changing the names and posting under false pretences. It got so messed up no one knew who anyone really was. It turned into some kinda game. Though the events like the MySpace tragedy that happened to that girl is taking things way too far.
