12. Are you trying to say I'm a troll? Heh. I just think that anonymous
discussion boards should be just that, anonymous.

I think it's great that some people choose to identify themselves here, and even use their name as their userid in some instances.

There's plenty of instances of people being stalked, or having disruptors making trouble for them due to having been id'ed off of websites, to go out of our way making it easier for them. Plenty of mean spirited RWers who would go out of their way to make trouble for any one of us just based on the fact that they disagree with us and we are vocal enough to post here.

It does bum me out that I can't check my post count though... Probably just as well, LOL.
