Anonymity isn't such a bad thing, get over it. Why do you assume it's offensive to everyone just because it seems to bother you so much? And what makes you think you're so interesting?

Yes, you have your right to speak up on issues. And so does the original poster that started this thread. You made a sweeping generalisation and he simply stated that you cannot make such an assumption about how the rest of the members on this list might feel about Martin's CD. Yet you chose to attack the fact that he did not post his name. Were you trying to detract from his comment? The whole thread did nothing more than make me go back and read what he said, and his comment was perfectly valid. I have not yet received Martin's CD and will withhold judgement until then. Will I like it? Maybe, I have no idea, and I would never presume that the rest of the membership here will feel as I do, however that may be.
No, it's not. These attacks often make me less likely to post and to lurk more.
