gnu & Burke,

I would say that there IS a difference between you and the anonymous guests, in that everything you post is yours, and identifiably so. We may not know your real names, but you are consistently YOU, and since we mostly know each other only by our postings our "real" names don't particularly matter.

I must admit that I do not always say some of the things I think, because they are probably somewhat personally unkind and as I was growing up I learned "If you can't say something nice..." But if I don't agree with a person I feel free to say so, and I'll either learn something new, change the other person's mind a bit, or agree to disagree. But I must admit, that good manners go a long way with me, and while I have found some questionable manners from people who do sign some sort of name, it is more often there from people who persistently remain "guest".

All in all, I find this place refreshing and caring, probably as I would find the people here in 3D. And the trolls and flamers most likely would not come to our gatherings...

And I was probably not creative enough to think of a nickname..
