SaberTaylor's Journal: anonymous coward is not anonymous 1

Journal by SaberTaylor

too lazy to dig it out for you, but I saw on c2.com Wiki from a /. editor that he watches the recent comments and feels a desire to expose the anonymity since he can tell who is anonymous coward.

Since this is a free software fansite, there is an elevated level of trust, the whole cottage industry of idealism here is about increased trust. That's why everyone loves Google here. Anyway.
