I've noticed that a lot of participants on this list hide behind an alias and they don't reveal who they are. As far as I'm concerned, I don't feel that anyone that can't reveal their name can expect to be taken seriously. Why would a reader assume that if someone is not willing to stand behind what they say, that they should be believed or taken seriously? On top of this, I think that when you know that others know who you are, you're probably not going to act like an a$$ on the list.
This is sort of along the lines that created the Rennerian coordinates on Homebrew Digest. I believe it came from an attempt by Jeff Renner to get participants in that list to identify themselves and improve the factuality and civility of that list. Fortunately, I haven't noted any uncivil manners on this list. But it sure would be nice to know who my fellow list mates are.
Stand up and let the world know who you are. Put your name in your signature line and stand behind what you say! You would not be alone. The folks who only ADD content to this forum let you know who they are.
