    Default I've changed my bub hub name!

    So I changed my bub hub name, but now no one will know who I am. I change it so friends or family wouldn't realize it was me in google searches etc.
    Would it defeat the purpose if I said who I was?

    Yeah it probably would
    I started a new account so people wouldn't know me (granted my old name wasn't very well known anyway) but I feel just the way I talk gives it away. You can give us a hint that your family stalkers won't pick straight away? Lol

    LOL! Its funny...I changed my username as it was my actual name and even tho I had been a member for years it just occured to me that anyone would know who I am (I posted a couple of threads that were quite personal).

    Once I changed my name I did notice that I didnt get many replies to my posts that I had previously. I guess when people see a username they recognise they associate a personality, etc to it so when its changed....they no longer know who you are.

    I recognise your pic and the signature but I dont remember your username.

    But yeah...defeats the purpose of changing it if you mention it or add it to your sig.

    I knew it was you by your avatar, some people might not remember it though... But saying who you are will probably make it much easier for those googling you to find you - which you don't want.

    Ummm, I just discovered a slight problem... When I search for your old username on BH it brings up some threads with your new username and same pic...... Not sure if its supposed to do that.
