What's wrong with that? Is that suspicious?
Not at all. That's fine. Ideally, I'd personally like to see everyone on this planet stopping to worry about outing his/her identity - without fear. However, I fully understand and respect anyone who prefers to remain anonymous on the internet and actually enjoy the continuous challenge of discerning "the wheat from the chaff" - with the sole help of my braincells, life experience and inborn intuition. I guess it's still too early for everyone to drop their 'Big Brother' anxieties.
But let's face it: this is a quite interesting topic - which certainly merits to be tackled and debated. One could righteously argue that people hiding behind a pseudonym/namesake/avatar/username "are letting the terrorists win!"
(as the popular saying goes...) Of course, in this case the "terrorists" would be the powers that be, who certainly keep reaping advantage of the fact that we, the people, waste precious 'battle-time' suspecting ourselves about the very reality of our existence as flesh-and-blood human beings.
I feel that this entire issue is intimately related with the very efforts we are deploying on this forum, as we fight this world's absurd, orwellian, artificial, psychotic, immature and asinine state of social interaction. As we now know, this sad state of affairs has been wilfully caused by a rogue minority of fellow earthlings who would all be, on an ideal and imaginary planet, rounded up and confined into mental institutions. Let us all strive to overcome our fears of being who we are.
