To me it does some. Knowing that we know that you are really Jean-David 
Beyer and that it probably is not a made up name, makes it far more likely 
that you'll consider your words before posting them online and that it is 
also less likely that you'd be trolling just for the fun of it.

Please note that I am in any way suggesting you'd be trolling otherwise, 
but a properly signed post for which a trust path from my key to yours 
exists does make a difference to me. A small one perhaps and you might not 
find it worth signing your posts for my convenience / peace of mind, but 
if you do sign it, I do appreciate it :-)
