Yesterday, Josh wrote a comment on my blog directed at another commenter who used the initials “JP” in his comment, “Curious who you are, I see a lot of comments on boards by ” jp ” and since I am known by JP myself I have people getting us confused so I switched to just my name. Who are you ?”
It’s a good point from Josh, but I can’t blame JP from using his initials, as he has done for quite some time when commenting on my blog. It gets confusing when people respond with just a name, moniker or initials. People may assume one person is responding when it’s someone else.
This is the primary reason for why you should sign up and get a Gravatar. Connected to your email address, a Gravatar is a small logo graphic that appears next to your name in a comment on many WordPress blogs. Gravatars are free to use and quick to make.
