Perhaps some of those you mention are contributing under another name ?
'Hello Rabbit is that you ?'
Rabbit: 'Let's pretend it isn't and see what happens...'
That would be delightful! And I could totally understand....if someone wanted to be carefree and footloose without having to fear his/her name would be dragged through the mud....sort of like that story where the king trades places with the pauper so that he can see how the other half lives!
Ya know...a long time ago .so long ago that I think it was the first PN forum..I had pm'ed Nonsum and was complaining that I was too stupid to have anyone take me seriously. I was sad because inside I knew what I wanted to say...but my limitations with language kept me from saying it....so I asked him if he thought it would be alright if I made a new name...where he could help me participate with the forum (sort of like cyrano de bergerac) so I could see what it was like to be treated as if I had something important to say or as if I belonged to the intelligent crowd...or other such nonsense...lol.
He said that it would be wrong to do that because you would be pulling the wool over your friends eyes. And while I can certainly understand where he was coming from...and yes it would be wrong in that sense...I think that if one of my friends did the same thing...meaning deceived me so that could see "how the other half lived" or something to that effect....I would not mind...as it would only be an experiment to live out a fantasy and not an intention to harm.
Anyway, we didn't do it cause I could not convince him to come over to the dark side ...lol
But that was part of his charm....
Good ol' Nonsum.....
