mynx: My own father calls me mynx.
Santa-Pap: All except my wife. pass the salt Gizmo dear just sounds wrong!
The Happy Hellchick Elf: Fargo called me by my real name in a meeting last week. That's the first time in the year I've known him that he's done that. He blushed!
shaithis: I try to avoid it, but it's hard, since everyone at GameSpy calls each other by their handles. It's really quite disturbing.
Lee'Mon the Trigger-Happy Snowman: One thing I learned at E3: Everyone at GameSpy seems to go by their monikers, even in real life. It was quite the adjustment. But then again, all my "friends of friends" call me Lee'Mon (whenever they're not mispronouncing it "leh-mawn" or "lemon"...)
Demonwench the Reindeer Slavedriver: Very rarely. Only for those "special people," and only then behind their back.
Spyke: Sometimes they use mine, as it's been a nickname of mine for a while.
Ash: Definately, my clanmates and 20 or so closest friends are always calling each other by our nicks, regardless of where we are or who's around us.

Demonwench the Reindeer Slavedriver: [screams and hides behind the couch] MAKE THE BAD CREATURES GO AWAY!!!
Spyke: Yes, and his job is to catch CIMAchu!
Ash: Nope, it's not. I've had this nick long before the Pokemon craze started, though I do have a flying pikachu in my office. (Oh, and definately 42 but what is the question?)

Ash is PQ's Content Manager and doesn't realize that there are other games in the world besides Quake.
Mynx is our resident advice expert, knowledgeable about all sorts of topics that the rest of us are just too scared to touch.
shaithis is a former PQ Site Director who now spends his days running GameSpy.com and sharpening the spikes on the top of his cubicle.
Spyke does the PQ in Review, the PQ Mailbag, and your girlfriend.
Lee'Mon writes articles and editorials for PQ, which means he's really into finding things to complain about.
Demonwench helps with the Mailbag and helps give a fresh new perspective for how people suck.
