This is a completely ludicrous argument. You can call yourself 'aaaa' if you want anomininity. Posting as A.M. gives you no more and no less privacy as being a registered user. And in fact, you're more likely to get respect and help as a registered user than A.M.

I have, in the past, felt that A.M. is an essential part of the Perlmonks community. However, my opinions are rapidly changing, as we get more exposure, and as a result, growth. I don't want to spend my time deleting nodes, editing posts, or chasing off trolls simply to support the A.M. posts.

If you can't post your name on your work, you're weak and insecure, and need help, or you're looking for hit-and-run answers, rather than being willing to participate in a wonderful community.

    I think you don't know the marketing methods of companies. I assume of course, that I get my Password per e-mail and of course afterwards all the crap(spam) to the same address. That is my privacy-issue! Not the monks, who have only the web-access, but the Sysop who can do more - and if (s)he is a company drone will do.

      Hotmail accounts are free. Create an account, get your password, then ignore/delete the account.

      And if you're really paranoid, login to hotmail via


      e-mail jcwren
      Unless you specifically put your email on your user info or sig or any other place, the only place where that is stored on PM is in the internal database, which means that the site would need to be cracked before someone can see your email. And as someone else pointed out, I've yet to see spam through my pm-specific account (see below).

        And who is the Sysop? And for which corp does (s)he work?
      The only thing we use your e-mail for is sending out your password and sending it to you once you forget it.

      Funny, I don't get any Spam on the email account I registered my PerlMonks account with.

      my $name = 'Ben Kittrell'; $name=~s/^(.+)\s(.).+$/\L$1$2/g; my $nick = 'tha' . $name . 'sta';
