actually I know I didn't make it sound so, but the point I was trying to make was not that of hiding behind an alias, but knowing you're making a statement as yourself. It might on occasion make you step back and think more carefully about what you write!
It does on occasion do that to me
I appreciate aliases are a standard internet board/chat thing but that doesn't mean its right or an unbreakable rule! We're all in OUR village discussing OUR village and its a bit different from most sites!! In fact having trolled through a tonne of local websites over the last few years I know its the only truly active local forum that I found!
We're bloody excellent and different us lot... as is Mark
Maybe we should start celebrating how fantastic this is and the fact we have access to such a fantastic tool to express our opinions.
