I agree with the comments already made. I think it is a pity we lose valuable contributors.
However, I can understand the reticence to continue if one´s identity has been compromised. I, personally , do not mind my name being known but what does concern me is identity robbery – that is why I, and I imagine others, prefer to use “handles”.
Anyway as you say you are returning, “all´s well that ends well” . Let´s hope we hear from you in the not too distant future.
