Just because you may know the real name of someone from an internet forum, does not make it OK to use it, repeatedly, when reponding to them, if that person uses (and goes by) their screenname/another name consistently.

Particularly when that someone has said that they don't want their name used.

It's also confusing when there are other people who have the same first name and do use it on the boards.
