There's only partial anonymity anyhow, especially by those who use the forum correctly, one username etc.

I would but I would guess the wind ups would be a lot less, boxer, Bridge etc.

There are a great many of us on here that are known to others on here & even if we disagree we can talk civilly to each other & therefore anonymity is not a problem .

It would be quite easy to guess those that want to hide though I should think .

To answer the question in isolation then yes I'd probably continue to use the site.

However, I am not sure why there is a clamber for names to be revealed all of a sudden.

I notice that all those who have called for an end to anonymity in the past are those who have revealed their names in the past and probably consider themselves to have lost their anonymity.

With this in mind, I think it would be fair to suggest that as the site has grown some of the posters who have previously revealed their usernames are not a happy about their decision to do so now.

With their names already revealed perhaps the thought of knowing X and Y appeals to them more than the advancement of the site.

Just about all similar sites have usernames, perhaps it should be asked why this site should be any different ?

I want to know who the kranks are as much as the next man because I am nosey but with all the legal actions and crackpots on the site why should I reveal my name to every Tom, Dick and Harry.

Besides I have already revealed my name to other posters on here but just not to as many as those who continually make the call for anonymity.

Not particularly bothered either way really.

Interesting those who say they would post more if it wasn`t anonymous.

Why would that be? Genuine question...

Fair enough lads, real names it is.

No big deal, I views don't change because of anonymity but it can and will cause problems.

For example nobody would have been giving Curryman any grief on Facebook if he wasn't known - I know that it is the crackpots fault and not Curryman's.

I have posted my name and other details on here in the past,probably when I shouldn't have. It has led to a few people in real life who already knew me acknowledging my posting, which is fine. With hindsight I probably wouldn't do it again but that's mainly due to me exposing my meltdowns here [8)] The odd few who have my number and e-mail I am comfortable with,however,there are a couple of posters who I would be dubious about knowing anything about me,for obvious reasons !To answer the question it's probably a no from me,in that I would like to remain selective about who has what info on me. That's just honest. That's why private messaging is my preferred middle of the road.

[^] absolutely. people use other social media with their real names so why should there be an issue about using what is to be fair an obscure, small message board.

It would not only prevent all the multiple usernames but also instantly stop the WUM's. And, as others have alluded to, I suspect the number of people posting would probably increase.

I can see that the large majority are for an end to anonymity and that's fair enough and it wouldn't stop me from posting if that were the case.

However, LALA has explained my only concerns far better than I did.

Basically there are crackpots about who would get up to no good and try and cause trouble for others.

Given what currently passes for debate on the site, I think preserving your anonymity is actually quite prudent.

It's a bit like being a moderator - had I known what level of abuse went with the job, I'm not sure I would have been quite so truthful about it when asked.

What is to stop you pretending to be somebody else anyway?

What with identity theft being so often in the headlines, why go out of your way to make it even easier?

In the grand scheme of things, it's a fans website FFS. You're never going to agree with everyone, so we'll all enjoy the odd spat now and again. Quite a few know me on here and I've announced my identity on a few occasions and I definitely wouldn't have a problem saying to somebody's face, what I post on here. People need to chill a bit.

There are one or two severely weird loons on here who I would most certainly not want turning up on my doorstep uninvited thanks very much, so it would be a definite no from me. And, as someone has already pointed out, who's to say that a 'real' name is actually real?

It's a no from me also.
I have posted for a numbers of years on this site and several know me.
The reason I choose anonymity is because I run a local business which customers many are pool fans and some also post on here and in this world I don't ever want to cross the two together.
They often ask do I use this site and straight away I reply yes but I don't want to know there username which is reversed.
If it was lifted I would then register a new name as my company is more important than a small random football forum.

How would you prove the 'real name' was correct ?

the only way would be something like credit or debit card registration and I am not sure that this site is geared up to be secure enough for that sort of information

I'm Ian by the way [smi]
