I’m glad anon identities are making a comeback. For a while it was looking as if real name stuff was gonna be required everywhere. It’s close to that but hasn’t QUITE gotten there yet.
I’ve done both. I found i like standing behind what I say better.
I lost my sense of anonymity in 2002 when Google opened up Usenet for an easy search. My early 90s shit on Usenet was exposed naked. So, I got over it.
Stuff I did under pseudonyms I’ve since claimed as mine. Why? ’cause it feels better to stand tall. But that’s me.
I support anonymity online. Everywhere? No. But in most of it? yeah.
