Thread Name: Who's Posted the Most?
Subject: RE: BS: Who's Posted the Most?
I still don't understand it. If I register under the name "Guest" and keep posting just the way that I am posting now then I am more credible because you think that you know me even if you don't. On top of that, I can be taken to task when I "fuck up". Can't that be done now? Assuming I give false information, that can still be pointed out.

How well do you really know ayone with an alias. In the real world Martin Gibson can be the nicest person on the face of the earth (highly unlikely but possible)but here he is usually a fool. Which is the real person? Can you really say that you know him?

Why does membership give more merit to the poster than non-membership?The person is still knowledgeable if he or she can post a knowledgeable message.

It really does sound like there is some sort of snobism prevelant here. It's like a fraternity. If you don't belong to us we have no use for you no matter who you are or what you say. Some really nice/good/qualified people just don't like to join a group for whatever reason they personally might have. It may have nothing at all to do with being afraid...just a personal preference.

Perhaps you should look at things with an open mind and be more accepting of those who have something to say whether they have registered their false name or not. I still don't feel that the act of becoming a member changes me or the messages that I leave.
