  •  I think that sentiment is admirable. (7+ / 0-)

    Back when I started blogging about 10 years ago, I used to always use my real name.

    Until some deranged wingnut sent a series of death threats that showed he knew my address.

    It is a calling...to do things about injustice.... It helps to have a goal. I've always tried to have one.--Ted Kennedy, True Compass

      I always used my real name because I figured I had nothing to hide, until a group of "friends" turned on me because of a decision I made as moderator of a forum that they didn't agree with. I was smeared, harassed and stalked for months.

      Now I don't even use the same pseudonym in more than one forum.
