        way.

        Dang, I was just getting ready to give up the HoundDog account, disappear and come back as myself with no connection to this account.

        I need to establish a real life ID, and restart my life after the unfortunate health events and bankruptcy that caused me to lose everything but the love of my son about 10 years ago. I came here to heal and recreate myself.

        I need to start working with some clients again as my saving are running low. Unfortunately I may have written some things under this HoundDog account that could be interpreted as not being wholly enthusiastic about unfettered free-market capitalism, lack of regulations, and even may have denounced corporate malfeasance and possible criminal behavior by some of my most important former, and perhaps, future clients.

        Also, I've on occasion admitted to having used marijuana, and the more alert user could notice during the periods prior to five years ago, this was in a state in which it was not legal at that time, a fact that could be embarrassing for some who hopes someday to perhaps be a high level activists and strategist with the Democratic Party of one of the political campaigns.

        So, my plan has been to come discretely come back under my real name posting some responsible, level headed, and informative Science, and other post, pretty much like the majority of my posts are.

        Going from 52,500 total rec, 29,000 plus comments, 1050 plus posts and 480 followers to, 0, 0, 0, 0 is a little bit sad, and wistful but something I will get used to

        But, I'm already missing you and my other friends,

        Hey, I know I will send you my real email so we can stay in touch. You just have to remember not to out me in my new name as the blogger former known as HoundDog.

        The hardest part is going to be keeping to a writing style that doesn't remind folks of the HoundDog character.

        But, since The HoundDog was just one of six characters in an interactive book called CyberDawg I was planning to write here Indy, I created an artificial persona for this character anyway.

        I do not normal use word like "folks" an affect a down home, hyper friendly country style personality.

        I "grew up" my first 20 years as a Research Associate at an elite university and then was a CEO of a consulting firm, and have had a lifetime of practice submerging and hiding my real personality.

        So my new new "real persona" will be the professional one that I came here to escape from, much more like the norm, and like nearly all the professional writers here.

        Succinct, to the point, no silliness. I'll have to find another place to meet my real emotional needs.

        The rule that we can only have one account at Daily Kos or face a lifetime ban totally sucks, IMO. But I do not want to risk that,

        A few years ago I asked Meteor Blades if he thought Markos might make an exception and he said the request would be denied in that tone that let me knew it not only wasn't worth asking but I inferred he was letting me know it was actually his decision and he might be insulted if I tried to take it any further.

        I might give it one last shot. It's not like I'm going to abuse the system by using two account to artificially drive up mojo. LOL Illicit Mojo!, can you imagine that? I guess that must be the worry? Do you know how many recurring posts exist here apparently for primary purpose that every who goes there rec and tips every one else? And. they are going to make me kill off the poor old HoundDog because I need to set up a seperate real life professional account! Sheesh!

        I'm not a trouble making, so I'm not going to do this, and it would blow my cover, and defeated the purpose anyway, but IMO, this rule  is actually discrimination. I might might be able to sue under the Americans with Disabilities Act claiming it discriminates against those with Disassociative Personality Disorder, formerly know as Multiple Personality Disorder and Gender Identity Disphoria (and am transitioning between two or more peronas).

        It my honest belief that we should be able to have as many UID as we can successfully manage different personas for. Its a lot more challenging than people might think.

        Like I said when I came here I was inspired by Tom Tomorrow's These Modern Times, with that Penguin and other animal character. So I was going to create a book called Cyberdawg about a genetically modified dog, and other animal that escaped from an MIT biology frat and lived in the abandoned firehouse be the Museum of Science Bridge. The MIT biology PhD has spliced in genius DNA and the ability to talk into CyberDawg. and six other characters.

        But then I discovered it was an offense that could get you banned for life so I dropped them all expect HoundDog.

          I hope there is a middle road you can find. I am finding that I need to separate some of my organizing as a Mormon feminist from my beginning career as a journalist.  It's a balancing act.
