Someone obviously misunderstood my post about FT and mixed that in with the debate.

should have thought that idea out a bit more. my point wasn't about cowardice though, it was about being able to build an image of given users' stances- something that is admittedly useful in a security context as well as when debating.

but yeah, good job we don't have leaders, eh?

Yes, as I said, our real life pictures.

His photo's Oscar Wilde and TLI's is Gir from the cartoon Invader Zim. We had a conversation a while ago about how we keep matching the avatar's to peoples real faces, originally I could only think of Zaz as a line drawing of Stirner.

Nevermind then, quite a trifling mistake. I must now go and finish off my latest play, Lord Baskingstoke is simply dreadful when I'm late, and I shan't be wanting that. Ah, but what lovely legs though.

Sorry, let me clarify. I am mistaken in saying we are all being hypocrites in saying they are anonymous cowards when we use aliases. Some of us, like yourself, are not anonymous people using aliases and are therefore justified in saying something like that. Not that you are saying that.

If that's the case then I am mistaken. I do feel that people have the right to anonymity though. I wouldn't call the cowards for it.

lies!

anyway i reject the premise that anonymity is in any way tied to cowardice in the first place. the usual refrain is that we're afraid to stand by what we say; but registering doesn't do anything to solve that supposed problem. besides, the premise assumes that we all value our e-rep, which isn't always true (i don't). it would be another matter if we were talking about using real names and somehow verifying them; but in that case i'd never post in a million years -- not 'cause i'm afraid to stand by what i say, but because i'm afraid of pissing off strangers. i don't want to get a mailbomb for calling capitalism exploitative. lol. anonymity fosters open, fearless dialog.
