A Case for Pseudonyms

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) makes the case for Pseudonyms. I do not fear for my life, but I still think there ought to be some separation between personal and public - on-line pseudonyms seem to be a reasonable method for maintaining that separation. If I started doing evil things with this blog, then there is a legal process for finding out who am. Not that it would be that hard given the various tidbits of personal information I've provided in my posts to track me down IRL.


  1. I agree with your thought process and would do the same if I started a blog. You are Phil Fulmer, right???

  2. Actually, my name rhymes with Ruce Earl.

  3. At least you have a hobby now, other than hosting BBQs.
