They keep forgetting that a lot of women don't like being stalked by psycho exes or new "friends".

I have my real name on FB, but no age or gender and I live in Ulan Bator (wink wink).

Maybe the solution is not to trust Facebook as a serious business.

Sybarite: Facebook needs to ban middle names. People who think they're being cutesy and clever aren't.

First time I've heard that, never seen someone have an issue with a middle name.

AverageAmericanGuy: Anonymous posting encourages anti-social online behaviors. It's easy to be an asshole if you can hide behind a pseudonym, and even easier if you never divulge any actual information.

People who don't tie their real names to their online personas are cowards.

It's a lot easier to disappear into a crowd with a name like Smith than something much less common. While I have a similarly common first name to what is in your profile, my last name makes me the only one with it in North America. Not wanting to share my name doesn't make me a coward, I just like my privacy, thanks.
