    Re: Online anonymity, real names, and NavList posts

    When I am talking to someone I only consider it common courtesy to give them my name so they can refer to me by my name. I consider it natural and normal that they should give me their name too so I might call them by their name. This is called conversation.

    I agree with George.
    Why the obsessive secrecy amounting to near paranoia with what is after all just a talking shop of like-minded people?
    If people don't want to give their name for whatever reason; simple: - don't post. Don't get involved.
    There should be no need for secrecy in such a basic communications exchange of interested chums talking together about a subject they enjoy.
