This is one of the drawbacks of using the AM account for posting. People are likely to assume you are someone other than who you are and also to assume that you will behave other than you would normally do so.
That seems like quite an unfair prejudice to me. :-( Why make such assumptions at all?
Post under a real account and people are far more likely to give you the benefit of the doubt. Its only human nature...
I think that's just "begging the question". Clearly, I don't consider distaste for anonymous postings to be "only human nature", because it's not in *my* nature, and I consider myself human. :-)
I've always been a bit bewildered by the hostility that some people display to anonymous posts. I was always taught that educated debate focused on ideas, not on people. Unfortunately, a lot of people seem to disagree. :-(
What puzzles me even more is that those who seem to object to "anonymous" posting are typically people who themselves post under some anonymous pseudonym, rather than their own real world identity. Am I the only one who senses some measure of hypocrisy there?
