Imagine: It’s the year 2001, and I’m a computer nerd. I have to make a username and password for every website which sucks.
If my preferred username is taken, I could add some numbers or XoX to the end and get something available, but that looks lame.
If I want a memorable username with no numbers, maybe I should make up a fake word that won’t mean anything to anybody, and then I’ll always have that as my username on every single site.
If someone asks me if I smoke, I think they’re talking about cigarettes. As a 15 year old, I am more naive than I want to admit.
