Does it confuse anyone else when people write their stories and instead of changing a person’s name they call them X and another person Y and soon it looks like a mathematical equasion and you have no idea what’s going on? Or is it just me? Things would be so much clearer in thoes posts if they jsut used a regular name but obviously not the person’s real name. Honestly I’ve given up on posts because of this.

Yeah that bugs me also. I usually cant finish reading the post because it drives me crazy and makes me think of math which I hate!

@Atalanta: what annoys me more is when people clearly forget they were using a psudonym for someone and change the name halfway through the post. I will quite often refer to my BM’s by their initials in my posts. (E, C, J, M) I guess they make sense to me because I’m writing it.

I just use “Sara” in place of “Crystal” or “Ben” in place of “Chris.” It’s just easier to use fake name than letters or I get myself confused, but typically I will still read other’s posts if they use letters. It just gets time consuming to read because sometimes it takes a while to figure out and keep the people straight.

Nope, letters work just as well as names for me. I get confused when pronouns or fiance/fiancee aren’t consistent.
