Canucklad, you’re right.
And even those people who post under names and complain about anonymity miss the point that
– the name may not be the posters real name (i.e. made up – I have met more than one person on BT who uses such a handle and they are amongst the nicest, most genuine people I have ever met and there are good reasons for their choices)
– the poster may be spoofing a real person and pretending to be them
Plus many other reasons why a forum identity could be misleading.
Even LinkedIn has its moments (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-34994858) and that is a forum that does not allow anonymity and where most people are genuine.
Like you, I accept what posters write, until there is a pattern of data that leads me to believe there is something incredible.
At the moment, I have strong doubts about one poster, though it may be that the poster is simply having a laugh with the rest of the forum.
