This may be me being dim but I can't think of a reason why someone would name change when starting a new thread, 'so they're not identified', but then announce that's what they have done... surely if you want to be anonymous then NC and just crack on... hmm Please can someone explain? I'm pretty new grin

So that people don't start suggesting they're a troll.

I think (but might be wrong) that it's more to show that they're not a troll, that they've been here a while.

Ive namechanged for this = im a regular not a troll.

Although a troll would also say this, so rather pointless.

Also if you are going to describe something outing you may not want someone who recognises you to search all your old posts and find out about your piles, that time you nicked a lippie from boots and that you hated the gift they got you for your birthday.
