maybe I'm old school, but "back in the day" everyone did use their
real name on usenet.  Worst case they used their three letter unix
login (like "dmr at alice.uucp" :-)

So everyone did know who everyone was.  Hiding was considered bogus.

I realize that now days everything is different.  But since everyone else
is commenting, I'll say sympathize with Al.

(and note that a little bit of "r" restraint goes a long way...)
