    Hi guys,

    I am wondering do you guys give your real name/ last name and or other characteristics when you register to youtube please?
    What about pros and cons of doing so please?

    Thanks.

    No. And there is no advantage in doing so.
    Always use a fake name. Most whitehatters do that too.

    Lol, had I used my own name for acc. registration, there would be 1000's of fake people with my name. :p I never use my real information, even in most of my real accounts. :D

    Thanks for all inputs,

    So all of you said NO to the real name question, but please can you let me know what's the reason? What if a guy tries to do so and use its real name?
