Still doesn't make sense. Folks can post anonymously without assistance or announcing it. My real name, for instance, is Keyser Soze. I don't tell you, you don't know.

In fact I have six other identities on TECHWR-L. You, John, have personally replied to all of my proxies ...

1. Muriel (the Punctuationater)
2. Joe PERTman (diagramophone)
3. Benny Jett (the White-out King)
4. Agnes Mouthwash ("I'm offended to the depths of epitome")
5. Spiro Spanikopita (i18n l33t)
6. TechCommDoobie (<cough> to get off)

Yes, I read this line before I posted, and know that *you* understood that A.P. is Lisa being helpful :-)

While I do think Lisa's sweet to do it and sweet in general, I still don't see the point. Heck, anonymity's the default state.

Seems to me that neediness, on the other hand, is learned. And enabled.

Thank you for using procmail. We now return to our regularly scheduled U.S. holiday weekend.

Peace-out, whirlers, and take a moment to remember the fallen.
