I disagree somewhat with your analysis of this. If somebody comes onto a website, like ATS, and bases their persona, on that site, totally upon a
group that has a predetermined public image - then that person, by default, is asking to be identified with the said group, and will automatically
face any accolades or prejudices inherent with that self imposed label.
If somebody joins tomorrow with the member name "MegaRepublican" - well then, obviously, other Republicans are going to chime in to say "awesome!"
and Democrats are likely to be less welcoming. Same thing in the inverse.
Even with that... enough time passes, and a posters personality comes through, helping to minimize the initial "image" issues - for better or for
worse. After all, ATS is a great place for second chances.
