And 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.

The 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 don 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 I m not used to.

You, you re getting away with it. Or maybe that s my prejudice. If all your posts were anonymous I d probably have gone after you a few times here or there. Who knows.

I 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 handle does.

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 does.

As 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 ljanonymouslj

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

Your 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.

That's why it's just so surreal that people in these forums are bringing up shit from three and four YEARS ago.

About 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 it 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 this.

If they're still exactly the same people they were back then...well, that's kind of pathetic, man.

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 paint.

So 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 missing it.
