in thread Are the words "strict" and "warnings" too negative?

Thank you for your support but this obsession with the legitimacy of anonymous posts is absurd considering your use of an anonymous alias.

    You’ve completely misunderstood the point I’ve made a dozen times. Maybe after a gross. Context, reputation, credibility. The monk who shall not be named is a frequent anonymous contributor for example. That’s the baseline–the worst. The OP was, to me, terrible and offputting. Like I said, I can’t tell it from trolling because I couldn’t write something like that with a straight face. If there had been a name attached, I’d have some connection, some empathy to give because it would be a person instead of an amalgam of faceless, sloppy, slapdash idiocy. The account Anonymous Monk is a polite analog for its more accurate antecedent Anonymous Coward. I’m strongly in favor of allowing anonymous posts. Doesn’t convey respect for those who do it.

    I post pseudonymously so that I can write about work without exposing my code vulnerabilities to hackers or myself to corporate censure if I criticize my workplace. Strangely enough—prudence being 20/20—neither has really come up. Believe it or not, I’m drastically more hostile, judgemental, and confrontational by my ActualEgo®. Anyone with basic library science skills could figure out who I really am without much research. :P The monks competent to do so, however, are the same monks who wouldn’t care to try. There are a few who already know and are polite enough to keep it to themselves.

    An anonymous alias with thousands of posts from the same identifiable person.

    AM was already used by thousands of different users in the last 2 decades.
