I also agree with you. Sometimes it becomes difficult to remember their real name and forum name. Another thing in my mind comes, why people don't mention their location in their profile and every time other members keep asking them to share their location. I agree, it's obviously one's own choice to choose their id as per their choice and show or hide their location, but I am sure providing those info, it will help them and others to get help easily

It's a handle that one can choose on a public forum. Nothing to do with hiding or revealing any identity. It's better than having names like abcd1, abcd2, abcd3. Rather choose a funky handle people would identify you with. As for my handle, I have been using it since my college days when we used play games over a local network in hostel.

Hi guys

I have had this question in my mind for long!
Why do FM have weird names as their user ID
I am curious to know the principle behind this.
Is there something in hiding your real name?

Anonymity can be a great form of protection. It's the reason why things like voice modulators/voice morphing, ski-masks and internet aliases exist (okay, maybe not the sole reason). All of these things can let you act with less inhibition. They allow you to do things that maybe you wouldn't do if people knew your real identity.

Now we'll never know if "removing the veil of anonymity" -- as Akshit put it... would create a "more positive environment" on this extensive forum network.
