2004 mood: Rushing to create an account on every new service so you can have the same name everywhere
2019 mood: Using a different name on every service because the internet is now a Dark Forest
@varx This is exactly what I'm up to lately.
@varx I started doing this with email as well. Before I'd use the same email for everything. Now I use username+folder so I know which service is selling my email address to spammers.
@varx alternate 2019 mood: being glad you have the same name on every service you joined in 2004 because they're now your best option for finding a job
@DialMforMara One under your everywhere name for main, another under a random name for shitposting. That's the real deal.
