Doug Richardson Posted November 19, 2003 Report Share Posted November 19, 2003 I don’t get it. Granted, I am not of the computer generation. Madalon takes care of all the E-mail except for the occasions when I want to address some subject. Then she sets up the computer for me and I type (I’ve learned how to do that) what I want to say. I have no clue as to how to send it. She takes over at that point. What I don’t understand is why people don’t use their real names. My name is Doug Richardson. It is not “Tguy”, “21Nut”, MGCrazy”, “Blasterman”, or any other such alias I might think up. If you hear from me, you hear from Doug Richardson. There is no confusion. On the other hand, the use by others of code names causes me a lot of confusion. Someone will write me several E-mails about a subject and sign them “Chopperdude” or something and the call me or write me giving me their name as “John Williams” or something and then expect me to relate the two names and continue the discussion. Quite frankly, I rather like the Thompson enthusiasts. They all seem like interesting people. I like hearing what they have to say, but it makes it a lot more enjoyable to me when a real name is attached. After a while I get to know the various people. After all, we are sort of a family aren’t we. Except for each other, who would put up with us. So what’s the deal? Why the secrecy? Are people afraid of being criticized for what they say? I think everyone has something interesting to say and ideas to offer. Someone explain this to me.
