in reply to Once again ... is it time to get rid of the Anonymous Monk?

Ooh, cool ... eight downvotes and counting!   (Is that a record?)   OOOOH!! And two more downvotes in less than one minute for this reply!   I oughta start collecting these things, and I would if I weren’t laughing so hard.

C’m on, people, lighten up.   You’re taking things much too seriously.   On the threads that I cited in the OP, poor Mr. Anonymous absolutely got blasted and on the assumption that someone known to somebody was trying to hide.   Maybe my comment just now was taken the same way?   Or did someone “know” what I was “really” saying, and reply in kind?   If so, I repeat:   lighten up!

Myself, I’d love to see the system set up so that it didn’t log me off by accident and dump my posts to Mr. Anonymous.   If other forums handle these issues a little differently, why can’t we simply discuss how the forum software could work differently or better?

“I have a few suggestions, which yes I have commented-on before, about how maybe the forum software could work better (IMHO) than it does now.”   That’s it; that’s all.

    "Myself, Iíd love to see the system set up so that it didnít log me off by accident and dump my posts to Mr. Anonymous."

    You seem alone in this accidental log off phenomenon. I've asked yout twice, in different threads to clarify your findings but as yet, no reply, no more details. If you actually care about this so alleged behaviour the logical thing would be to respond with more information. Repeat claims are fairly futile if you're not prepared to follow up on them.

    "assumption that someone known to somebody was trying to hide."

    Your assumption, you have no evidence anyone else has jumped to this conclusion.

    "Maybe my comment just now was taken the same way?"

    Perhaps by some, perhaps not. However you've been given some fairly concrete feedback in this thread, and others, which you've chosen to ignore, and instead posted a reply to yourself with theories founded upon assuming you know what others are thinking.

    You cannot be surprised by that. You are a member of this site long enough, and you know the rules. A downvote is a valid way for a monk to express the discontent with a proposed idea. See here: How should I spend my votes? -- General Voting Guidelines. In fact, downvoting you post is a way to treat your post seriously, however to come to a different conclusion than you do. So you should lighten up.

    And it is of course no record. The worst node today is this - and with a good reason.

    Have a nice day!
