The IT Skeptic defends his anonymity
See this forum thread for a discussion (hopefully) of some criticism of the IT Skeptic, including over anonymity
An extract from my remarks:
Why be anonymous? Three reasons:
1) I can comment without restraints that might be imposed by other roles I perform in my profession
2) I can avoid nasty emails and heated debates at conferences and meetings. I imagine my physical safety could be an issue with a few of the comments I have made
3) it's fun
I believe (and hope) that anonymity does not reflect on credibility. People can judge me by the quality of my content and my arguements, and the integrity of my position. I stand behind those. I welcome debate and criticism like this in order to refine those further.
