There was a time we used to go online to chat anonymously, but nowadays we go Offline for being anonymous... Life has changed a lot.Anonymity can be a great form of protection. It's the reason why things like voice modulators/voice morphing, ski-masks and internet aliases exist (okay, maybe not the sole reason). All of these things can let you act with less inhibition. They allow you to do things that maybe you wouldn't do if people knew your real identity.
Now we'll never know if "removing the veil of anonymity" -- as Akshit put it... would create a "more positive environment" on this extensive forum network.
BTW, no comments on weird forum IDs
(mine is reminiscent of the time, when I hardly controlled my anger).
