The reason for the distinction is that ‘someone’ started following me and I didn’t pay it any attention because codegtr wasn’t a recognized term, just thought it was another rando. If I had seen “crackingthecodeguitar” I would have been like “oh, cool!”
the username will be there every time they leave a comment or do any action like that, so it’s good for it to be something that will connect.
Good example, Rick Graham has like 100K followers now - so if CTC leaves an insightful comment on one of his posts, that will get seen by a lot of people. If others connect that “oh, that’s cracking the code, I know them!” I think it will connect better rather than it just seeming like another random fan.
