    Probably because they don't want to get banned on that sites...

    and other people can user their usernames to steel accounts , I know someone who had that problem before and most of his account were gone because of knowing his username
    also some people use it as a cover to hide their real username to do something naughty

    Picture a scenario where you've got the same username here as well as bmtv(assume).You abuse their staff out of sheer frustration or say something controversial that they deem to be abusive(they tend to deem most things as abusive),then you may get banned.
    Go ahead,ponder.

    People don't need to know your usernames on private trackers. For authorities, this is only more clues as to your suspicious activities on the intra-net.

    Only those who have something to hide need to cover their usernames. You will find that the more trustworthy people within the BT community keep to the same username on every tracker and forum.
