Not in Perlmonks.

If the world was a better place, you might be right, and wouldn't it be great if you were?

There's all kinds of reasons for anonymity in many places, that go beyond your negative experience and also beyond my positive imagination.

And then, there's cowardice too, but I hope you agree that it would be better to give room for cowardice, than for witch hunting on the other extreme.

I make one up, just for the sake of the discussion.
Given I love my job. Then imagine, my boss now partakes in a campaign to the detriment of some perl technology: There's a number of malicious bugs introduced into some code that was thought to be reliable since when it was coded in 1993...
now, on the wave of that technology's ills, he wants to get rid of it, while I want to do my best here to a) get rid of its bugs and b) convince everybody that once the bugs be fixed, the technology would be going strong once again.

Do you think I should rather not do a) and b) than do it anonymously? Or rather not be such a coward and risk to lose my job?

...because I was a target of an anonymous troll's campaign earlier this year.

That's a shame on all those nice Anonymous Monk fellas who write great posts. Still, they too, lurk out there.

Cheers, Sören
