When the user joins an anonymous room, other participants’ nicknames are derived from the resourcepart of the in-room JID on a best-effort basis, so room@server/user becomes user.

When the user joins a non-anonymous room though, the nicknames are derived from the localpart of their real JID, creating confusion as to who the user is talking to since most other clients will continue to use the in-room resourcepart in that case.
