I'm not sure to what degree you mean by anonymity. I've communicated a few things about myself on this board, but I've also kept some things private, based on an unfortunate experience from another chat board. It began innocently enough, but I found that it quickly developed into a very awkward situtation in which this other person knew where to contact me, and used some of my personal information on the board (which I gave out confidentially via personal messaging) in an inconsiderate and reckless manner. No disrespect to anyone here at all, but as the saying goes, "Fool me once; shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me." I very much like the folks I've met on this board. But in the future, I will extend those relationships further with a healthy respect for sound judgement. If someone contacts me personally, I treat that person's words as confidential, and would never reveal the content unless I knew the other person had okayed it. As someone once said, "Just play nice."
