    An additional consideration is outsiders googling for personal information
    about e.g. a job applicant (apparently quite common these days). Speaking
    for myself, I would have no problems telling a (discreet) fellow poster who
    I am, but I would not at all be comfortable with the thought that a
    prospective employer, girl-friend, whatnot, could link my posts here to me
    without my consent---possibly reading them out of context, gaining access
    to ``things you can only tell a stranger'' information, or a similar.

    (Not that I think that I written anything majorly incriminating sofar---it
    is more a general feeling of discomfort.)

    Since you occasionally refer to me as 'tracknut', I think you need to clarify that. I remember no e-mails or ISP threats!!! I do remember PMing you here once asking for a peace treaty and you told me to stop 'stalking' you! :shock: :?: :!: :?: :!:

    Having met lonewolf in Eugene, I'm more than happy to out him. His real name is Chief Jumping Bean of the Hopi (Native American) nation.

    Several regulars have identified themselves publicly but I don't think we should ascribe ulterior motives to those who choose a screen name, many of which are more descriptive than real names would be.

    A few years ago a whole bunch of us publicly proclaimed our real names here... why not ? But it is "fun" to have a handle.

    Among the top 50 posters here, exactly TWO go by first and last name, Mile Renfro and Per Anderson. Several others are easy to figure out, but most go by aliases.

    Who's a fellow have to sleep with around here to crack the Top 50? I may not be a Taf/Marl/andall here, but I do my best! :wink:

    Yes, Pego, this is the crux of the matter...I concur wholeheartedly, as you may attempt to defend yourself if you're participating here, but if not, it is the extreme of cowardice to take shots at people who ostensibly are not participating. Good point, you xxxxxxx!

    Gh, that is a rather disheartening comment coming from you. How do we interpret this?

    Glad shes reunited with her kids though, I fully believe she'll have more integrity as a mother than an (alleged) sports person!
