Why should he?

Aren't we all hiding /something/?

What if he used a fake name that sounded real?

How do you know lots of us aren't doing that already?

I mean, you don't.

Is the point just to encourage people to use convincing names that don't sound
fake? I mean realistically that's the best you can ask for, right?

But for what? What actual difference does it make?

This whole real name obsession is bonkers.

This forum contains echomail areas hosted on Nightmare BBS You can browse local echomail areas, italian fidonet areas and a selection of international fidonet areas, reading messages posted by users in Nightmare BBS or even other BBSs all over the world. You can find file areas too (functional to fidonet technology). You can browse echomail areas and download files with no registration, but if you want to write messages in echomail areas, or use fidonet netmail (private messages with fidomet technology), you have to register. Only a minimal set of data is required, functional to echomail and netmail usage (name, password, email); a registration and login with facebook is provided too, to allow easy registration. If you won't follow rules (each echomail areas has its own, regularly posted in the echomail), your account may be suspended;
