I know a nudist who loves it in part because she says that without the clothes and jewelry, there is so much more equality among people. Personally, I look at the anonymity of the Internet the same way.
I've seen people too many times brushed off in real life because of their socioeconomic class, their gender, or their age. I think the mask is best; it helps sort out the diamonds from the dung without having the issue of where it's coming from getting in the way.

I don't know. For the purpose of credibility and furthering the education of others; i.e. a thread is about so and so and you have a double doctorate in that field with 30 years real world experience then yes. For those of you that posted replies with concerns about it being used to track you, grow up, then wake up. I've worked in the communications field (how's that for vague) for 15 years and a better part of that was for the DoD, if you think that simply viewing a thread on this site or any similar site isn't traceable, let alone logged every time, even those of you who THINK you know about computers and communications are truly naive by every possible definition of the term. Your proxies, spoofed mac's and tapping nearby wifi's are a joke.
