Thomas the Rhymer Members Versus Guests and Noms de Plume (144* d) RE: Members Versus Guests and Non de Plumes 16 Apr 07

Though I did sign in as 'GUEST Corrigo' and "GUEST New Guy" a couple of times, I do not have any other 'monikers' here at mudcat, and I don't 'sign in' as GUEST.

As to your excellent point, Sandra, about whether there is any difference between anonymous guests and members that post under different names and characters... I'd say... 'not much'. Though there may be more 'craft' involved in maintaining consistent 'personality disorders'... the end result of such a contrast would be to exchange or compare disingenuity with sociopathic cowardice.
