If that's what you want, don't post anonymously.

    Agreed.

    It seems to have become popular to post unpopular or controversial ideas anonymously. One presumes this is to avoid down votes, negative XP, criticism, or some other Bad Thing (TM).

    I'm normally not a "suck-it-up, buttercup" kind of person, but if you want to be taken seriously AM, you need to be willing to take the shots along with the praise.

    I don't follow that "logic" at all. It sounds like you're discriminating against some users and forcing their nodes into an invisible ghetto. Don't you think it's important for people to know the lies told about (free) Perl by (the multi-million dollar corporation known as) PHP?

      Not very. Not enough to 'approve' an off-topic post. The node isn't hidden. It just isn't listed on the Meditations page.

    A reply falls below the community's threshold of quality. You may see it by logging in.
