even if some one was to use their real name you would still have to get to know them in order for their post to have any meaning, that is unless you just go goo goo for a name.
also i feel for some, particularly when some ****** wants to trash someone, and they are hiding for the purpose of being a assss, but come on, it is just not that hard to figure out what these guys are up to.
their are very good reasons as to why some one may choose to keep some degree of privacy in their life.
their are some that simply do not want attention drawn in their direction, maybe they want to be a nobody and the forum is the only place they can.
i have had people track me down, call my house, and i just am not willing to do that any more in my life.
i am a recluse, a hermit, and most of the people within a stones throw of me, do not and will not ever know me.
those that do know me, know me as pan, or pan60.
i am pan60, and it is not that difficult for someone to get to know me as pan60
thats who i am!
just my thoughts, i can see both sides:(~
