hidden members
« on: September 16, 2013, 10:57:28 PM »
I am intrigued to know why we have hidden members who are allowed access to the forum are they afraid to be seen to be owning a microcar after all they could use a pseudonym to hide their identity

Remember seeing some of the members in the school showers when I was a kid. Most of them should have been kept hidden away.  :o ;D

I cant see the issue really. Its people using pseudonyms that I find more disturbing.

I am quite happy to have my name instead of the pseudonyms but why should we when others cower away and hide bit like the people who block their numbers on the phone then moan when you do not ring them back
As for the pseudonyms how many Gary's are there or Richards who want that particular name so they have to have something else

I'm not really all that fussed but its nice to know who you are talking too. re your other point, there are a lot of Bobs and Richards out there but how many Bob Purtons or Richard Warrens do you know? Just use both your names. Simples!  Or have I misunderstood your point?

You could use a relevant combination of real name and tag name:-

'Jim the Aerosol' for instance?

I am moving this topic to the OFF TOPIC LOUNGE which is where it belongs as it has nothing to do with the discussion of microcars.

Well, at least you know I am Pete, from my user name. Or at least I purport to be Pete. Had Bob not met me to know I am indeed Pete I might actually be a Susan. So, what's in a name? And how do you know the name is real? I've met Bob but in the absence of asking for formal ID he might actually be a Simon or a Roger. Am I bothered by this conspiracy theory? Well, not really. But what does bother me are the Internet scammers and fraudsters lurking in the shadows, waiting to steal my identity and clone me financially and for that reason I shy away from using my full name on the Internet and will not participate in FB, twitter and the like.

Actually I have no privileged information as to any forum users name. Only the administrator has that.[I think?]  I don't know who the hidden ones are either. I was taking an educated guess at yours. Sorry it upset you, its now blanked out. All three moderators are actively encouraging users to use there real names though due to recent problems.
