One "insiders crowd" is the moderators and Administrators. They have access to information that most users don't have access to.

The English "What is your name?" is freely translated to Spanish as ┬┐Como se llama? The literal translation of this to English is, "What do you call yourself?" In this Forum, that would be the username. That's the name that appears in quoted passages of their posts by default.

I have experimented by replacing the default username in the above quotation with the name in the user's public profile. Success!
