so back when i was cool and knew people, it was largely because i was keeping in touch with all you fuzzballs on facebook. i was registered there as saul mondriaan, which to my eye is a plausible name--but facebook baleeted my account twice because it knew, via psychic vibrations or maybe haruspicy, that i had something else written on my birth certificate.
i want to be a huge furry pile of fail on facebook, but i definitely do not want to be a huge pile of furry fail under my real name--i work in a sensitive industry, my parents are alive and have the internet, that kind of thing. how do i elude the psionic guardians in service of mark zuckerberg while still, you know, calling myself whatever i want to be called?
I've thought about reactivating my furry FB account sometimes, but I'm worried about this sort of thing. They never tagged my account as being "fake" but I deactivated before that became a common policy of theirs, I guess.
I'd think that having a character name that could be a real name can only help. I'm still wondering about how these kinds of accounts rise to their attention.
