for the eight millionth time: if an internet handle really wasn't an
identifier in any way, shape or form, you wouldn't bother with anon.

Nonsense. I was just sitting here wondering would I would do if I got
nailed. All my posts, all back to me. What would I do?
My immediate reaction would
be shit! But that would pass, and pretty quickly too.
reason I post anon is because I think anon posting in and of itself
gives posts more credibility. If I use my moniker people are going to
do what I do - either skip right over it entirely, or put too much
weight into it, based on past prejudices and experiences with whoever
that poster is. I know I do that. Don't you?
So there's always
going to be certain amount of that, regarding who you're paying
attention to. Then there's the past. Posts I regret. I'm sure there's
some. I probably look like a hypocrite at times, and I really hate
that, but I never really did anything THEN that I regret, so it's all
kind of moot. I know I meant what I said then, and I know what I say
now. They're different. Things change.
I've also wondered if
people I'm agreeing with here are people I totally wrote off at the
dope. I'm sure that's happened, and it makes me more aware of what
people are ALWAYS saying, not just what I THINK they're saying. I think
that's where a lot of things go wrong at the dope, and other boards;
people are taking past each other, so no one's listening. Here I donŸ€ t
see that as much.
There's nothing in here if it came back to me
I would regret - I've never lied. I've never been dishonest to anyone
or myself. I've never been malicious without a cause, 'You're a dick
because of.. '. For me, it just works out better this way. I pay more
attention and get tested in ways IŸ€ m not used to.
You, youŸ€ re
getting away with it. Or maybe thatŸ€ s my prejudice. If all your posts
were anonymous IŸ€ d probably have gone after you a few times here or
there. Who knows.
understand the appeal of anonymity - I posted anon for the first few
months of ljanonymouslj. I stopped for some of the reasons Dio listed
below: to me, it felt hypocritical to talk shit without my name
attached. One of the things I've made a conscious effort to learn to do
is be up-front with people (reasonably, anyhow; I do some snarking IRL,
but believe me, Jesus would have snarked about THIS tacky-ass low-class
shit) and posting anon makes me feel shittier than posting under my
There're people around who, like me, have been
around since ljanonymouslj, and those who choose could verify that I
haven't said "Anon people are all shitty" or "the anon forums should be
shut down" or even "I'm better than the anon people." I have said that I don't give as
much weight to their opinions as to those of people I can identify, but to me that only
makes sense. The random asshole yelling "NICE ASS" doesn't affect me. My hubman saying it
far as having posted shit in the past that makes me cringe now...well,
I understand that people change. That's why it's just so surreal that
people in these forums are bringing up shit from three and four YEARS
ago. If they're still exactly the same people they were back
then...well, that's kind of pathetic, man.
Buzz kicked in, may as well stop before I
become ENTIRELY incoherent.
Oh, and feel free to rip into me any time. Believe me,
nothing anyone says about me in here can even scratch the paint.

Come on hama, I'm usually all behind you. Your two first sentences
fuck that up.
I posted anon for the first few months of
Yet here you are, in another topic here, or even this one, saying you
never post anonymously. WTF? I almost called you on that.
it felt hypocritical to
talk shit without my name attached
name isn't attached, get over it. It's some moniker most of us can
recognize from a few or your posts, but few can put it IRL. You know
That's why it's just so surreal that people in these forums are bringing up shit
from three and four YEARS ago.
who and about what? Wally? Opal? Those are all current events, in some
circles. These are stupid little things that were once fought over in
private, and itŸ€ s shit that's been ongoing since the founding. Only
because it wasn't allowed to be discussed is it ever coming up here
now, and with the reactions you'd expect. If the fuckers wanted this
shit dropped, they should have aired it out long ago. Again, you know
If they're still exactly the same people they were back then...well, that's kind of
You got that fucking straight.
Oh, and feel free to rip
into me any time. Believe me, nothing anyone says about me in here can even scratch the
far, I haven't seen anyone really try. Why the upfront defense if
you're so sure of yourself. That's what I normally like about you.
Unrepentive and honest. That's attractive, and probably why people go
after dio instead of you.
That's the last time I quote this line
for line shit. Or the snippets I like. It's like I'm at the dope all
over again. No thanks.
Hama, you're good people, at least from
what I've seen (There goes my prejudice). Don't ruin it by standing
firm under what kind of people use their names or not, because you're
