Sorry, that's not something we can do. In general, the purpose of using an alias on the Internet is to protect your identity. Picking a username that will ensure your anonymity is your responsibility and the primary means by which you protect yourself online.

You can always print out some article to share with your friend. but other than that, you really should have been more careful not to post incriminating identifiers in a public forum.

Pssssst.

The new board software allows you to pick a different public name to use on the boards than the name you registered with.

Just hit the link which says "my profile" in the top right hand corner of every board page, then hit "edit profile" and you'll see a window where you can pick a different publicly displayed name than the handle you registered with. [Smile]
