I DON'T BELIEVE IN ANONYMITY!

I believe that anonymity does no one any good. I tried it and it made me sicker than I'd ever been. But even worse, it let those who know absolutely nothing about me, speak out about me on my behalf. Once the ideal wasn't so farfetched, and for some, it may work. But today, the concept seems so absurd for me personally, and for a society that is supposed to benefit from the people in it.
