Originally, I tried to sign in with my real name, but I made an error and wound
up taking a pseudonym. In my case, unless I gave a resume, my real name means
nothing anyhow. Most ASAers might like to use their real name.

Some on Tweb take pains to hide their identity. I think that the atheists and
agnostics largely fall in that crowd. There is one guy called "Socrates" who is
probably a ringer form AiG and does not want that to be known.

By and large the web site has a lot of silliness and games -- so who cares?
