A name is just a name. Even if my real name was used, I do hope my
credentials would not be public nor that I am recognized.  Not everyone
enjoys publicity, or being overtly affiliated with a group such as this
one. Even knowing about crypto, tends to make some suspicious, politics
and dogma aside.

unfortunately so. I like to think that my occupation, and education
affords me a greater ranking than so, but that would require you all to
know my credentials.. Which, no one here needs to know. So I can
understand how I might appear to be abnormal from the majority here.

 Granted. However if I used a real name instead of a pseudonym, would
that make people ¨feel¨ better? My words would not have changed. Perhaps
I would just be seen as ¨socially accountable¨ (reputationally -
speaking) for any insightful or inappropiate comments. The same is true
of a pseudonym. My reputation is on the line. Just not my real name. I
do not wish to be publicly affiliated with this group (No offense) . I 
have my reasons for that.
