May as well give out random letter & number sequences when people log in for the first time and again when they wish to create multiple and similarly fake identities to abuse the good graces of this free forum. It should be obvious that on the current eplaya the free abilility to change identities and maintain multiple identities at best fosters a noncommittal chat-room atmosphere, and at worst enables a really hideous form of pranking and counter-pranking.

Bob wrote:Sure, it's customary at Burning Man to use nicknames -- one, usually. The eplaya has become the kind of Halloween party you want to leave, and quickly. While I'd prefer the kind of standards newspapers use for Letters to the Editor, I can accept at least giving people relevant guidelines on the proper use (if there is any) of anonymity.
