Very low post count, blatantly re-posting the link to a personal webpage, taking on regular members of the community, and calling them anonymous... Are you sure your name is Jon D and not Bob Krist?
you say you are not anonymous.
so what is your name?
you don´t even post your forename.... mine is jon by the way, not bob.
all you can do is attack people out of anonymity.. you know how people call that?
at least bob krist wrote his real name under the article!
What is this obsession with names, rather than ideas?
I visit a number of forums where net-names are used with no complaints (boat design forums for example).
In this age of world-wide exposure, with a given percentage of nuts among the readership, there are known and unknown(but potential) hazards to be encountered with exposure of personal info and I.D.
If the Emperor shows up nude, his titles, past performance, or reputation should not change our opinions about the current event, ...i.e., we should not imagine him dressed in finery only to meet our usual expectations.
If we focus on the merits or lack thereof of the ideas exchanged on any forum, letting the poster(by whatever name) be respected or otherwise as his/her comments dictate, why do we care who he/she is, especially since any name posted may be bogus?
Me, of course, you can trust - my name is Napoleon Bonaparte.
