Some of the most prolific posters on this forum, write anonymously.
What is the group feeling on whether or not this should be allowed?
Should everyone on IH be forced to declare their full identity?
Those of you who write anonymously, why do you choose to do so? Would you still continue to write under your true name?
I suspect there is some tension on the one hand, between those young users who are used to living in the post-privacy age, and an older cadre of users, with professional careers, who are cautious of the long tail of unintended consequences, and would probably not post (or at least not as frankly) if they had to reveal their entire professional resume.
The analogy would be like journalists in some nations, who simply could not write under their true identity. Obviously, when people are selling something, the rules change and public disclosure is to be expected.
