Yes, tye has come forward now, after I wouldn't let it die.

I quote myself:

I still intended to identify myself when it seemed appropriate. I had started that process in private messages before you posted this.

It is not true that I came forward because you wouldn't let it die. You said "after" but I still read that as "because" (it doesn't make sense to say "after something didn't happen" and mean "after in time but not as a result of", that I can tell).

If there is an abuse, there is a system for responding to it (one part of which is posting just like you did). A guarantee that the silenced one will immediately know who the culprit was is not part of that system. I think it would be a mistake to make that a part of the system.

    So, to summarize, you don't find my arguments compelling. But then, that's hardly surprising, is it? After all, you've found anonymity (even temporary anonymity) useful, so of course you're loathe to surrender it.

    I'm glad you've expressed your opinion, but I hope the Monastery will disregard it.
