Yes, it indeed is the content that counts. Note that there are quite some
regular posters on this list also using pseudonyms. Nobody dismisses their
opinion based on that. You keep focussing on the mention of using a pseudonym,
whereas it was the actual /content/, all the name-calling and insults, of your
initial mail that triggered the dismissal of what you wrote.
