Drop the Handle

I just remembered a li’l something from the article “How to Become a Hacker.”

There’s this one rule, or something like it, that says,

Don’t use a silly, grandiose user ID or screen name.

I will now have to change my display name. At least, keep it closest to my real name.

The problem with screen names or handles deserves some amplification. Concealing your identity behind a handle is a juvenile and silly behavior characteristic of crackers, warez d00dz, and other lower life forms. Hackers don’t do this; they’re proud of what they do and want it associated with their real names. So if you have a handle, drop it. In the hacker culture it will only mark you as a loser.
