Default display name on Linux.com?

I just wanted to make sure I wasn't confused, before sending an e-mail off to the linux.com web-devel team. When I registered, I included a username and my real full name, assuming that only my username would be displayed. Then I noticed, though, that each of my posts was being display with my full name.

I immediately went to my profile and changed my full name to be the same as my username. I didn't really want my full name to be displayed publicly, for privacy reasons.

It seems odd that this would be the default setting. Any thoughts?
