Some body said:
"No credible newspaper will print anonymous letters to the editor."
This amy be true but it is quite common (at least in the UK) for letters to
appear with "Name and address supplied" - basically this means that the
writer felt that having his/her name published with the letter would lead
to harrassment (or whatever) and the Editor has agreed. Perhaps this is a
way round the "anon" situation? If you feel you have a reason to be anon
then say so and let Eric say yea/nay. If nay then you have the option of
posting or not.
