Deceiving Screen Names

So what are some of the more deceiving ones? I know I've been assumed to be male a handful of times. I've too made the same mistake based on names or avatars.

So have you ever mistaken someone's sex, age, political views, etc by reading their screen name?

I thought IWB was a guy for the longest time.

I'm also quite sketchy on Mangrenade.

My last name was bono_vox.
I guess that could have been confusing.

I also thought IWB was a boy as I thought anitram was a bloke too. There have been others, I justcan't think of them now

since it's already been mentioned several times that people have thought i was a guy, i've got another one.

i was mistaken for a right-wing bush supporter when arguing about how i think green day's "american idiot" song is bullshit. apparently if you hate wannabe-punks who scream "fuck bush!" with no actual reason behind it, you must support bush

but that has nothing to do with screen names, does it.
