Nickname in thread title?

This happens quite regulary (and I've only seen it on M3 forums..) Why do a lot of people here speak about themselves in third person when creating threads? i.e "IloveM3's new wheels" and "BobtheBuilders photoshoot" etcetcetc...

The name of the thread starter is written right below the thread title anyway..

Comet thinks it is because instead of posting "My new puppy" it makes it look like less of a repost and more interesting.

wow.. that was a waste of space.. sorry! Zlaatan thanks everyone for their kind and thoughtful answers (while he secretly regrets saying it's only happening on M3 forums..) and puts these 3rd person ego boosts, and this thread, in the same pile as everyone who writes "first post" in various comment sections around the world wide web..

Have a good one everybody!
