My name is registered with Webmasterworld as is my email address and they have been from 2005. Any problems with what I post can be directly attributed to me as a real person, no problems. Ask the mods if you don't believe me.
My name also appears on my websites as does my address in most cases. So I am definitely not one of the many who prefer to publish and remain anonymous. I stand accountable by what I publish on the web even if it is sometimes proved incorrect.
I do believe that anonymity gives many people "permission" to write on the internet what they want without any comeback. And I do believe that if anonymity was removed then the web would be a better place.
Anonymity is essential in elections, but there are few other cases where it is justified. This Google initiative is worthy of more than just being mocked. And I am no Google fan!
