Fair enough, but if you have no interest in who someone is, you don't have much context on what they say. For every discussion on the forum, there is some consideration as to who you are speaking to.alamos_kiter wrote:You see, I had no idea who or what Bracuru is. Didn't google it, and I just wanted to make a point, not going after him (or her), nor interested in who she or he is. If he presented himself as Bracuru foilboards, I would take he's selling foilboards. That's cool. If he's Bracuru, well, he's just Bracuru isn't he, which is good enough for me.KYLakeKiter wrote:Seems weird that you are after BraCuru about anonymity. That is his business name (Bracuru Foilboards), so it is much less anonymous than most.alamos_kiter wrote:BraCuru is hardly your proper name if you're from Poland. Sounds more like a place in Brasil? So why don't you disclose your name, surname, address, email, mobile number, credit card number, age, picture, pic of your dog, boat, wife, and car?
I'm all for the "like" button Toby. Saves people from having to do the +1 post just to agree with what someone said.
I am sure that we all take a moment to at least check the profile of a poster when they say something that catches our interest either positive or negative. Beyond the profile, we only have what someone has previously posted which creates their identity on the forum.
As downunder stated, we can all put our real names and any information we want on the forum. In todays environment, that is probably not too smart for anyone other than a business.
I like that the forum gives the full range of options from full anonymity to complete disclosure. Whatever works for you.
