We'd always post using our real names... and not cop prejudice from
Refer to rules 3 and 4 of the Hacker Ethic... if you don't think
anonymity is related just check out youtube or Ewebuntu forum posts. :-D
My name is on my posts - does it help? No. There are 6 people that I

You may even see people posting to this forum using their real names and

> Does anyone have anything else to say on the topic?
Rule 4....
