BBS/Internet names

I seem to have very little problem remembering the BBS/IRC/M*/Internet names of people, but I can almost never remember the "real" name of people I don't see/speak to often, unless I've been reminded of their name 5 or 6 times. I guess for me it's easier to remember a name I've read instead of one told to me. The "handles" seem to stick in my memory longer too, so if I run into them after quite some time, their old BBS handle will come into my mind more readily than their name.
