You are expressing the opinion that your beliefs should be imposed upon everyone here at PM.
Not at all. I just expressef my ideas and the arguments in favour if it. About the counter-arguments, I said "I understand all those arguments and they are not wrong, but it just "hurts" the way I see anonymity
". My own, personal way of seeing anonymity. Perish the thought I would impose
my views upon someone else. And in any case, the argument goes against you too: why would you impose
your view of anonymity? Furthermore, given that there is no "branding" of AMs (yet), it seems my view is more in line with current practice. :)
You are talking about your idealogical preferences. Do you know the difference between an idealist and an extremist?
Yes, it is my idea of "anonymity". Please feel free to worship any other idea. I may be an idealist or even an extremist (nothing wrong with either of them), but I am not a fundamentalist. So have no fear that a mob of torch-wielding zealots will knock on your door if you do not bow to my ideas.
A program should be light and agile, its subroutines connected like a string of pearls. The spirit and intent of the program should be retained throughout. There should be neither too little or too much, neither needless loops nor useless variables, neither lack of structure nor overwhelming rigidity." - The Tao of Programming, 4.1 - Geoffrey James
