I can't understand why some people feel the need to sign their posts with their user name. Are they worried that someone might log into their account and pretend to be them and not be smart enough to forge (via typing) the account holders user name?

The only explanation that I can think of is that these people are looking for some sort of a celebrity ego boost by seeing their name repeated over and over on the internet. Its akin to people posting what their having for dinner on Facebook or getting off on large post count numbers.

I'm sorry mods but this is dumb even in a rant!

No more so that those of us that do/don't have one of those egotistic creations in the top left corner of our replies.

To each his own (within ATS limits of course).

It makes one wonder if an individual who would notice such a little thing and allow it to bother him/her/itself to such a degree that he/she/it felt the need to create a thread about it actually takes the time and energy to read any of the material attached to that little annoyance before zeroing in on same. I would say it's more habit than ego, but if the goal is to stick in one's head, I'd say there is at least one success they can take credit for.
