In Sausalito overlooking S.F. Bay with my uncle, Lucky Strike nonfilters and a case of Bud. Those splendid days are long gone.

Why did we ever embrace the of nom de plumes on the net. I have because it seems to be the modus operandi of the culture. I am considering using my real name on all posts everywhere in the future. I suppose I need to run it by my daughter and other net savvy friends first. It is kind of odd that I even think it is an issue.

@Tennessee Catfish: I've used my real name for the past couple of years simply because, well, I'm sick of the stupid names most of these trolls use (or most people use, for that manner). Using my own name also requires me to make damned sure that whatever I write represents an _informed_ opinion, not an endless stream of blather.

Granted, most people feel that they can spew whatever nonsense they want on the Web due to anonymity...

But I agree with PM about the twisted nature of ideology--he pretty much nailed it.

Mark, you are right.
