I don't get why people use the word "fat" or "can'tlose" for their member names

It's almost like a self-fulfilling prophecy. You come here every day and see I'm fat over and over and over.

i think it's probably a self-depricating type of humor that they might have. I did that for YEARS!!!!! I made fun of myself before others could make fun of me, so that it wouldn't hurt so bad if someone else called me fat (it still hurt!) -so perhaps the loggers with those names are just used to refering to themselves that way-and don't realize how crappy it sounds.

to tell you the truth, i don't get most people's sign on names. for all we know the nams could mean something entirely different than we think. "can't lose" in particular may not mean that they can't lose weight, maybe it means that they "can't lose by trying". context!
