It's also best to not link your user or personal information that can be tracked elsewhere, like social media sites. I use a very specific user name on all therian sites. One that is not traceable to any real life accounts. I am a bit paranoid that way
But simply put, what I say here I wish to have a strict level of protection, and a disconnect. Who I am here on these boards, and who I am in real life, even outside of those who know me from Facebook is very private.
