A furry thing, a while back when I dipped into the fandom a bit. Can't say I really left, but it's not exactly something that is a way of life. Mostly just keep in touch with friends via irc anymore, as opposed to doing "furry things".
And my reddit name, flappity, was from when I joined a CS 1.5 clan made by a few friends. They went by names like Batty [Llama] and other oddball adjective-like words, and I came up with flappity when I joined them. After the clan dissipated, my name stayed for lack of anything better so that's what I use as my public name, until recently (which is more like 5-6 years ago) when I started using wolf sometimes.
