Your point is well taken, but I had attempted (both in discussion here
and in the excerpt for _Linux Gazette_) to make clear that I was
speaking only of the problems of pseudonymous and anonymous discussion.
(In fact, that's what I'd been discussing here when you interjected with
that not-very-related anecdote about the town meeting.)

I certainly hope your comments are read and considered on their merits,
since your point was a good one, articulately stated.  (I certainly knew
what you meant, at least.)
