How can you join in threads that you don't wish to be public in - do you just re-join as a new person?
I don't want anything to back fire in months/years to come if my dh ever came online and saw some of my postings. Slim chance I know - but sods law.......

if you go to your member profile you can change your nickname from there. You will still own your original one, so you can flick between any you register under your profile.

what people usually do is to go into their Member Profile and choose an alias before posting - like nobody/anon etc and post under this.

just go into Your member profile (in blue near the top of the page Headed Useful stuff) and change your nickname

Oh - so can you chance your nickname, do your posting and then change it back to normal?

might also be helpful to change your nickname permanently to something that doesn't resemble your real name to make you less easily guessable.

another you might want to do if posting about personal stuff is "tinker" with the ages/no of your kids
