I used a girl rather than a boy as an example cuz boys don't tend to post half naked photos of themselves or call themselves "SexyBoy69" half as much as girls do, but it's true that there are groomers and rapists who will target boys as well as or instead of girls so both sexes need to be vigilante. You wouldn't walk around town wearing a sandwich board with your full name, address and phone number printed on both sides, so why do it on the internet?
Regarding usernames; if you're aged 8-16 you should not be calling yourself "sexy", "dirty", "sl'utty" or anything that's of a sexual nature in your username. Tags like "pretty" or "sweet" are OK-ish, but should still not be used by girls not even past puberty yet. The same goes for having sexy pictures in your sig and av; if I see anyone with them on here, their sig and av will be wiped and the user will receive a warning.
