Why does my username appear as it does? December 22, 2005 2:03 AM   Subscribe

My username is PenguinBukkake, capital "P" capital "B". But my comment box, in Safari, reads,

Posting as: penguinBukkake (logout)

Why?

If the answer's too obvious, please forgive my ignorance in all things tech-related. I just thought it was weird. Happy holidays all, by the way.

Yeah, I think geekyguy's right. It matters in some places (but not all) how you typed the name when you logged in.

Well at least your name doesn't end in 's', or you end up with something like

edgeways's Profile

on your profile page. Looks as if anyone with a name ending in 's' has this special S feature attached.
