    I don't think its stupid to have the same user names on trackers... But on forums you may want to use a different one to protect your identity some what. But its very smart to keep different passwords just in case of a breech

    No it is not stupid. People will just recognize you more. Maybe if you differ in important opinions from one forum/torrent site to another it could get boring for you. On FST it could be that you trade and your name could get recognized and result in a ban.
    What an ordinary day, the extraordinary way.

    if I want to hide from something or don't want people to recognize me, I'll use a different nickname, i think that's all the reason if I want to use a different name don't know about you, depend on the purpose I guess

    Using different names can be an additional security measure because we all know that trackers aren't always the safest choices when it comes to protect your privacy.

    I do have some trackers where my name is the same but I also have other names or name-combinations I used either because my original name was already taken or because I value anonymity. As I'm only taking part in a few tracker communities my username on other sites doesn't really matter

    there are tracker staff who hate you for being a member here. even if you haven't done anything wrong.

    i think this goes for a tracker that sounds like a codec afaik.
