I don't have a verified answer for you, but I suspect it has to do with server logging and the general abuse they receive.

Did you know shirt.woot ships internationally? Get you some!

i would have settled for "da." "thunderthighs" is a little weird for a self-chosen moniker.

or even "screaming monkey guide," though i guess that would have been a little too long.

A long time ago, a few friends called me

They said it that way:

Zero-X-Seven-F-anie

Now someone else can tell you why.

Kinda reminds me of when my stepmother chose not to call me by my birth name when I stopped using a nickname. Everyone in the family switched but she refused.
