in thread Anonymous Monk?

We're all perfectly anonymous here, right? I'm Jim. And that, by the way, is my real name—the name my mother calls me. But you don't know which of millions of Jims I am. I'm otherwise perfectly anonymous. If I say to you, "Your mother wears army boots!", you can't empty my bank account or sever a limb to punish me for insulting your mom, can you? (BTW, your mom's a doll, ELISHEVA. Just in case you can empty my bank account or sever a limb for insulting your dear mother!)

I have a confession to make. I'm practically every user on PerlMonks! PerlMonks is almost entirely one guy...me! Every post attributed to "Anonymous Monk" is mine! And all those other whacky usernames...mine! All mine!

I hope the fact that every response you get to anything you post on PerlMonks is coming from one amorphous respondent named "Anonymous Monk" that is actually is me, a mediocre Perl programmer, is not a problem for you. I try to be really right.

    If that was true, your question would be moot.

    PerlMonks is almost entirely one guy...me! Every post attributed to "Anonymous Monk" is mine!

    It's like we're giving these people a new account every time they post, so you could say every post attributed to "Anonymous Monk" is by a different person.

    I really don't care who write the nodes, and you shouldn't either, just remember to consider what is said instead of who is talking.

    ...but I think you know this already..since I'm you ;)
