But beyond that, I have to say that I'm getting a bit weary of talking with pseudonymns. I want to know who I'm communicating with. To that end, from now on I am going to ask anyone who posts a comment on my blog to please "sign" it at the end with their real name, first and last. If you feel you can't go that far, at least sign your first name.
Depending upon how this works, and how my feelings about "anonenmity" evolve over time, I may make this a requirement for posting comments. Or not. -- PL
