I can see why that person would use a pseudonym, but when a journalist
quotes "Slashdot blogger named Barbara Hudson," I would expect there
to be someone blogging on Slashdot under that name, and I would expect
the link on "Barbara Hudson" to point to that blog rather than to the
home page for a Tom Hudson who doesn't seem to have any opinions about
documentation.
