I actually like this board because your real name isn't required to be shown. With some of the juvenile people that show up, there is always the thought of off-board harassment for me at least. I agree though that maybe a filled out bio should be made mandatory. I also personally wouldn't mind too much, revealing details to a mod/admin if one or more thought that a discussion had reached that point or there was some suspicion about grandiose claims etc. Just my .02cents

Yes, if you are here and involved long enough you will be threatened. Your unknown identity will keep you safe.
I have been threatened and harrassed. I know of a member here who actually had threatening phone calls. With a family that is very scary.

I used to really like the idea of having folks use their real names to foster accountability. That's why I've always used my real name. I think way too many people with fake user names come on board and throw [censored] on the wall just to see what sticks.

Brian's comment about people creating fake names is a valid one, unless they are actually instructors, in which case creating a fake name wouldn't make any sense if they were actually wanting to be seen within the martial arts online communities.

At this point however, I couldn't care less what people choose to do...forums are mostly GARBAGE! This one is no different! In a few cases, some people may actually benefit to some small degree through well-reasoned arguments. But I doubt this happens very much at all. For the most part, all you end up with is crap from kids, people who don't even train and have no intention to, and inexperienced martial artists who want to sound like experts. That's why I don't contribute as much as I used to. Its pointless. The real learning takes place on the dojo floor.

I don't care about who uses what name anymore. It doesn't make a difference to me. Let the lunatics run the asylum, at the end of the day, this place will be what it is; an internet forum for talking heads.

Perhaps this thread should be renamed to 'the cynical ex-mod venting thread'?
