We've had numerous posts on this in the past.
Its been discussed at length actually.
I don't put my real name in my posts. But because I am older than dirt and been around here before the beginning of time, most folks know who I am.
I also have a link to my website, so that pretty much lets the somewhat computer literate folks find out who I am if they wanna. Or they can just ask.
One of Joe S bird throwers.
We all know this to be malarky...Joe S. doesn't keep bird throwers that are older than dirt. :wink:
Besides, I KNOW ALL the 'older than dirt' community, and you hain't registered. :roll:
The funny bit about this thread is I always thought Wayne Dibbley and Jason Gillette WERE real names. Imagine my shock in finding out Frank Rizzo, and Ron Mexico have been pulling the wool over our eyes all this time. :shock: :?
I hate to admit this, but if "Wayne" or "Jason" had ripped me, it wouldn't have made any difference had they used their real names or not, because I don't know either one from a bale of hay.
This is not to put down Mike's request, but it does point out how insignificant the moniker is, unless it gets to the point of hiring a lawyer and serving papers. These BB's always provide a certain amount of anonymity, except to those with reputations that precede them, like Chris, Dr. Ed, or the UIM.
OTOH, when I read a post that has a lot in it that I agree with, I like to find out just who that individual is so a further relationship can develope. I've respected Joe Miano's views for a long time. His use of Subroc is unique, and it sets him apart from any ordinary Joe...excluding of course Joe S of bird thrower fame.
WAH has had so many aliases, I doubt he even knows who he really is at times, but his views give him away. Same for KJRice. For all I know he may be fooling us too...mebbe his real name is KJOats. Matters not, he's not playing with a full deck regardless of his moniker.
Of course that can be said of many on here...Moosegooser being the leader of that group. And about all we know about /Paul or Bubba is they live in a strange land surrounded by wierd folks that love to jello wrestle.
I know many here have your view, Mike. Like Lee stated, It's come up on previous threads, and on one of them, as I recall, many of us fessed up and provided a brief resume of credentials. You can search for that and review most of the aliases still hanging around. But I believe it was pretty much left the way it is, because if your views on anything, political or otherwise, differ with Uncle Bill, how would they change if my last name of Spitzer was added to the moniker?
For that matter, if some outrageous thread gets posted by an obvious alias, it doesn't take long before that individual is drummed into submission. Whatdoyathink happened to the fancy moderator?
