My question is why someone would want
to post really great comments but want to
remain anonymous???

Please consider posting with your sig.
so we know who is answering/responding
to a question of debate.

My comments may not always be the best
on this list but I am willing to post with my
sig. so that others may respond on list to
my comments or email me personally.

BTW part of the netiquette of this list
*if I remember correctly* as per
Eric's numerous "rules" postings is to argue
the ideas (without a previous posters name attached).
Use snipettes of the post(s) preceding ours own.

Good policy. Keeps down flames and
keeps us on track.

I think the general disclaimer that you speak
for yourself and not your company/organization/
institution, yet keep your sig. should be
sufficient (IMHO).

o What say some of you about "anonymous"
