When people sign with fake names, it's easy for them to claim that  
they "need" to be anonymous. After all, the claim can't be checked.

I'm afraid that after many years on the net, in all kinds of forums, I  
have come to discount anything said by anyone who won't sign their  
real name. Including their protestations of the terrible things that  
will happen to them if they rant under their real names. Regardless of  
what I feel about whatever they're posting!

And if someone purports to vouch for the good faith of a fake-name  
person, then unless the vouching party is well-known to me, my  
conclusion is often that they're BOTH sock puppets. That's not a hard  
and fast rule, but sadly, it's often true.

This would be a more useful forum if the use of a false name were  
defined as "abuse" that would quickly lead to blocking.
