If you are worried an intruder might survive and sue you I have two, wait, make that three simple suggestions:
1) Increase your homeowners insurance coverage,
2) 12 gauge with #4 buckshot
3) Don't do what Mr. Durst did in Galveston, Texas.

In some states, if they are breaking in to your house, they are considered a threat and deadly force can be used. Should they survive the initial hail of bullets and the reloading, a burglar who sues is continuing his attack (as far as I'm concerned) and the situation again justifies deadly force We don't exterminate enough roaches in this country.
Hinkley needs to be put down. He not only destroyed several peoples' lives and tried to assassinate the leader of the free world, but his actions resulted in one of the biggest abuses of our freedoms in recent history.

What happens a lot ( in my case ) is that when filly out the "identiy"
and password, people tend to put in a handle. I just write Zamm, a shortened version of my last name, Zammiello.
after signing up with so many on line things and accounts, it get's to be a habit.

4). if the invader you just dropped turns out to be unarmed, put a kitchen knife in both of his hands. (When you're on the witness stand trying to explain that you were in imminent danger of losing your life, you don't his estate's lawyer asking you , "Why was the knife in his right hand when Mr. Crackhead was left-handed?")

My acronym BB is more of a habit, when I started at my present employer I was the tallest member of staff (I'm 3rd now) and they called me Big Boy. PK called me a giant when I comented I took a 16 5/8" pull on my rifle stock. After four years of being called BB by the aprox 50-70 people you see every or almost every day you come to think of yourself that way.
Not out to deceve anyone, nor hide. I'm sure the code your computer sends out and the computer knolagable and the agencys that watch for such things could have you found in a couple of hours. My monaker refers to one of the Colts in my colection, one of two I was fortunate enough to receve as inheratance.
Shouldn't be to difficut for most people to dedcuce what calber it is chambered for. I shoot a lot of ACP but the people at Lee (im)Perscision were a little miffed when I called and complained that their dies wouldn't resize cases to hold .451 230grn pumkins.
I'm going to concede argument with Doug and agree it's hard to always match up screen names with peoples names, but when I have busness dealings with people I use my right name. I use a moniker on my CB radio too.

I work in Information Security, and as such I am paid to be paranoid. I realize that in today's electronic world, there is much more information than we are aware of or would like to admit about each and every one of us out there if someone really cares and knows how to look. I take the approach that there is no reason to create any more public information about myself than necessary. I generally agree with the other comments in this thread about anonymity, though I also realize there is a very low probability of someone tracking me through this site.
I have had wonderful conversations with you a couple times on the phone and have purchased items from you. I realize that you have not been able to link my real name (Roger Herbst) to my pseudonym of TSMG28, and you give a good argument for being able to know who is involved in our small Thompson community.
Thanks for raising this issue. It has been an interesting thread.
