Subject: RE: BS: Veterans Would Mudcat hook you in today?
Well, there's nothing about Mudcat to make people obsessed with identities -- I think you're projecting, or associating a wide-spread human flaw with one locale. I repeat -- I have never seen a shot fired at a Guest who was genuinely and civilly seeking to express a viewpoint and communicate. It seems to me that 99 per cent of any wrath aimed at Guests has been because of the quality of their communication.

If you were to review a listing of all posts for which the name was merely "Guest" only, I think you would find that over 80% of them could be characterized as anti-communication -- the kind of thing designed solely to make others wrong, upset people, generalize negative nounlessness and so on.

You tend to be an exception in that although you do get snide and negative from time to time, you also have something to say. I even fancy I can usually tell which of Those Who Shall Not Name Themselves I am speaking to, although that could just be delusory on my part.

Personally, I feel that communicating from namelessness is a discourtesy, like graffiti on the subways.
