I agree that the use of psuedonyms does tend to invalidate comments, whether they are pro or anti.
While many of the aliases used here are those that particular person usually uses, there are others which have been invented for the purpose of stirring the pot.
I was always under the impression that this practice wasn't encouraged on Mudcat, but then Mudcat rules are as elastic as the definition of folk music.
Remember this, WE fund the BBC, and they pay Smoothiechops, so by extension we fund them too. They should be fully accountable for actions carried out on our behalf.
Inform, educate, entertain!
