I think what would be more important that insisting on real names would be insisting on having a link to a website of one's photographic work, as that is more relevant when posting in a photography forum, than the name on one's birth certificate. Particularly if like myself you are not even called/known by the first name on said document.
I adopted jjj [a contraction of a nickname] for speed of signing in and as my website is in signature, I'm hardly anonymous.

Sure. But the topic is not pseudonyms vs real names, it's hiding behind pseudonyms - ie anonymity.

Fair enough, maybe you should make that distinction more explicit.

not entirely irrelevant to life I suppose,
but I'd make it mandatory for each member to point out the constructive works they're involved with.
Names my foot.
Who cares?
So if you never want to hear from people who are sensitive to their identity due to the nature of the people they work with,
require names.
And this much is true-
unless you try very very hard to hide,
the people that want to find out who you are, can.
And anyone posting about less freedom, not more,
is trying to make their trip the trip of the entire planet, and in the words of someone better than me that knows how,
KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF MY ART!

What a bunch of snobs! So you would refuse to join the Lone Ranger for a beer just because he "hides" behind a mask?

Now, were you to refuse to join him for that beer because you don't like beer, then that's okay by me because I can't stand the stuff either; why you should refuse the beer, disregarding your views on its flavour, is for his Cavalier treatment of his companion. Hmmm... companion?

Now tell me that this is OT. And when you do, tell me what the T actually is that this is not.

Thanks for your rant. Not sure it makes sense though.

I think the T has been exhausted. Most reasonable people here seems to agree, moderator as well, that non-anonymity is preferred, but should be a free choice. Worked well so far. Time to move on.

You're probably right. The pub is filling up with drunks Wink
