Subject: BS: Excessive Posting-The Cure?
From: Charley Noble
Date: 24 Feb 05 - 09:50 AM

One of my friends commented that I had posted more than 5000 times on Mudcat and implied that this was excessive. I may indeed need counseling. However, I'm not even sure what kind of specialist I should be approaching. There appear to be other Mudcat members who share this problem, and perhaps they would be willing to share the insights they have gained from their experience.

The question raised up thread about the number of memebers is impossble to answer accurately.

But if you choose the option to Send a Message to a Member from your personal page and leave the subsequent selection box blank and press "Go:" a list of possible names to PM to appears. Discounting the ones marked "test" there are 12,696 names in the list.

However, thousands are probably one-time use, lookie-loos, and other kinds of nixies.

Gnu, you really know how to hurt someone. How can you possibly say that I don't exist? I'm a living, breathing person just like everyon else. Is my lack of a name any different than those of you who make up names and people don't really know who you are. Does Martin Gibson exist? That's as much his name as Guest is mine. Has anyone ever met him? Perhaps I am him and he is me and you are the walrus or the eggman or whatever.

What's the difference in logging in under a fake name or not logging in while using a fake name? Either way, you have no idea who I really am. If I was a member who gave the name John Smith what more would you really know about me? Would my replies make me smarter or make me seem more knowledgeable just because I used the name John Smith instead of Guest? Many great pieces of music were written by Anon. Are they less great because there is not a name attached to them? Why does the simple act of registering my name make me any better than being a Guest? Unless there is some snobism attached to membership, I just don't understand what makes an anonymous member different from an anonymous non-member.

Guest:

You often appear in the guise of someone of intelligence, but ths is clearly one of your many feints and dodges, because the answer to your question is obvious.

If you insist on communicating as legion, you are enforcing a not-there-ness on those who try to read what you are saying. You leave out the most critical notion inherent in communication, because you collapse your identitiy with an unbounded set -- I mean, the viewpoint one always adds tot he text when reading a post.

You may not ever meet Jerrry Rasmussen or Big Mick, but yopu know their point of view, and you are pretty certain about who they are even when you don't have a legal identity. There's a constancty of voice and framework which makes a cyber-correspondent "knowable" even though his identity may be legally a fiction.

But with you, well, you could be anyone. Talking to you means you could be a thousand points of view, your context slips through the mind like a wet and whining wind, you build your relationships on dust.

One effect of this phenomenon is that you impress people as being very afraid, whether you are or not, because it is so similar to the "viewpoint" opf someone in fear, leapingfrom place to place, trying to find a safe way to be.

That's what's the difference.

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.

guest - I don't give a damn whether you belong to mudcat or not. what I do care about is *NOT* having to talk to a faceless, voiceless non-entity hidden behind a wall when there are countless numbers of other faceless, voiceless non-entities also talking from behind the wall. I'd like to have a tag of some sort to be able to address.

Hell - even LH's made up characters post consistently when he posts under their names.

it's not that you are more credible if you post under a consistent handle - it's that those who read your posts are able to discern which posts are "you" - and thus more likely to able to extract the information you are trying to convey.

It is the uniqueness, which is a part of the truth, that you destroy with your obsessive anonymity.

It's the difference between "I" and everyone, between "Cobb's Mill" and "everywhere", or between "a letter from Tom Stallworthy" and "somebody called, I dunno who it was though..." or trying to listen to soeone who says "everybody knows that....".

The reason just saying Guest doesn't work is because it is automatically assigned to non-members, and it means there is no uniqueness.

All true communication is between unique points of view.

So you appear suspect from the outset even though you are sure you have done nothing to warrant suspicion. You're unwilling to stand up for an "I" even one as safe as a fictitious but consistent I. You insist on using a formless generality, as though you were a Cosmic Voice or too scared to show yourself even that much.

Gnu,

It shows just how little you really gnow. I posted both messages that you attirbute to Guest 1 and Guest 2. The second one was a response to what you assumed was fully answered. I cannot accept your answer because I don't agree with it. I would think that we have the right to respectfully disagree even though I have not registered under an alias. Since it seems that most people's minds are made up that a Guest is a despicable animal who does not belong on the face of the earth I will now close out my part of this discussion. I don't believe in wasting my time debating closed-minded people. That is not meant to be in insult to you. It is just a statement of fact regarding this subject.

Into the mist I go. Where I will return nobody does know.
