Misconseptions due to screen name or avatar.

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by fuzzy beard, Aug 8, 2012.


  1. Well after a thread i started a day or so ago i have leanred that alot of people thought i was a doom metal player due to my screen name!

    Truth is i dont think my taste in music could be farther from doom. I LOVE folk,roots,country,blues type music!!

    So lets all share are misconseptions!


    I thought JimmyM was black.

    And untill i read some of Tbird1958 post i thought he was a woman.

    Your turn!

    I was disappointed when I saw a real pic of Mungi.

    This is going to be a funny thread.

    Trying to think of names right now...

    I thought the same of JimmyM. I think of spankypants as a goth dude. MSUsouzaphone make me think he was in the MSU marching band.

    With my name people probaly think I'm emo or goth or something.
    I'm not I don't paint my fingernails, dress in Hot Topic clothes or have a dog collar of spikes around my neck with some well placed eye shadow.

    The Dead Pawns are a band I'm in joined when I was 16 I'm 22 now. So that's where the Dead Pawn comes from. By the way the DP's aren't even emo or goth either we're a Missouri Punk band. I am a member cause I send in lyrics and sometimes they morph them into either parts of songs or a entire song.

    I picked X cause I just always loved the letter no real meaning.

    I really don't try to conceptualize people online I just go by their avatar. I have none so I guess people don't really think I'm a serious poster either.
     
  7. I thought Phalex was a porn star. :D

    People think I'm a southpark fan- but my handle is from my nickname. I don't even like south park.

    My username has nothing to do with adult films. It is just my first two initials and my last name, Sporn. Also, contrary to my avatar, I am not a rainbow mane and tailed Pegasus, and my Rickenbacker is a fretless JetGlo.

    I don't look like this: img2306za0.

    But I like that album and had no idea for a username.

    I assumed from your name and avatar that there might be a chance you happen to have a fuzzy beard.

    Because of my name some people think I'm a stoner. I am a lot older than my Avatar picture and I'm comb my hair more than once a week now. I still love that sweater though
