In the early days of the Interwebs I went by Heff online pretty much everywhere. In fact I can remember the days when there were only a few others trying to use the moniker online and I'd wage "salt the Earth" wars against them to retain my ownership of the handle - which got to be a very time consuming process by about the mid-nineties.
I actually came to dislike the name and all of the spam and mistaken identity BS that came with it. After all, I'd already defaulted from going by "John" for the exact same reason - and it was happening all over again.
