in reply to We should elminate: Anonymous, and DOWN-voting

I cordially submit ... that it would (just) perhaps be very enlightening (indeed!) to consider ...

Just which replies to this very thread(!), have been “anonymous,” and which have not.

“Why or why not?”   Very seriously, I submit, “let us leave that as An Exercise To The Reader.™”

If we might agree that the site is the True Resource™ here, and that Our Mutual Objective™ is To Make It Better Resource For Us All™ ... what, if anything, might we mutually learn from this?

Just askin’ ...

Here we all are:   total strangers.   If we met one another at the railway station, we would both know exactly what to do:   we would utterly and completely ignore one another.

So why do we, here, on the Internet, react to one another so completely differently?   Pardon me, but, Inquiring Minds Want To Know.™

I mean, if we all just try not to be so utterly and completely and humanly(!) so caught-up in “this thing,” what might we take away from “this thing?”

If the common human rules of civility would dictate upon us merely the decision of, “who among us should be purchasing the first round of Guiness?®” then perhaps we all should be focusing our attentions upon that!

Just askin’™ ...
