Journal Journal: anonymous coward is not anonymous 1

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. Just thought it noteworthy that anonymous coward is not anonymous here, contrary to my expectation. I don't blame /. they have a lot of administrivia to do versus trolls.

yawn. will delete later.

Journal Journal: verbal water

noting that a cup of coffee can catch me the wrong way resulting in junk /. posts, I'd rather just use a nym finally (yet again.) all things said read-only for infinite duration, and done in infinite public accessibility. all things said and done.
