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.

...
There was a time we used to go online to chat anonymously, but nowadays we go Offline for being anonymous... Life has changed a lot.

BTW, no comments on weird forum IDs ;);)
(mine is reminiscent of the time, when I hardly controlled my anger).

What's in a name :)
Well, forum handles are the globally accepted system of being know on a forum.
Nothing wierd about it to my thinking. A name does not tell me any more about a person than a handle.
In fact a handle may, at times, say more about someone than the name :D

@Akshit2111 How about weird profile pics..:)
Tbh it didnt catch my attention that much :)
Pet pics i always find very addorable.
Love dogs :)

Pooches are an intrinsic part of the music ecosystem.
They sit with us and listen patiently; though sometimes my dogs give me the
"Enough with the music/movie!! Feed me now look".:p
Cheers,
Raghu
On a frindly note i have read that dogs have quite sensitive ears. They shud nt be subjected to loud music :)

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?
Does it matter? there are infinite Akshit in India right? ;)

For the freedom of contradicting without getting confronted in person.

Names or Pseudo names or Nick names dont really matter.......end of the day individual preferences and fancies!

Most important which I have been asking and raising with the Mods is for everyone to mention a definite location (city name etc) and a Search feature made available which can show me the list of members under my location (City) when required. This helps new and existing members to reach out / socialise in person where / when possible ....most of us wait for What HiFi show or some big AV event to meet FMs ,,,,,this happens once / twice in a year and unfortunately all are not available...

I was about to say that and your profile picture is not weird. But then who really gets to enjoy the music more ???? Its not you !!!!

Exactly! Totally agree on that.
Also on other forums when a product is reviewed below that theres an option to know which FM has it or which FM wants it or which FM had it.
I thought it was really handy.
