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


After many years on the Net, you came to that
conclusion, huh? Guess what? Most people don't spend
that much time on the Net.

And let me see, you work at your own company in the
field of role playing games, right? Steve, imo, you
have little idea of what the majority are like. Yes,
cryonicists SHOULD hide their identities because
exposure as such would make you look like a weirdo and
a freak. Yeah, I realize that in the tiny, oddball
community of RPG enthusiasts, being a cryonicist or an
atheist will not make you an object of unwanted
attention or even hatred. But--NEWSFLASH--out there in
the real world, it sure as hell CAN!
