    What does anonymity have to do with credibility?
    Consistency of voice is a factor. If you were to always post as Anon451, for example, and your posts were normally helpful, then it is (perhaps more human nature than wise) to assume that your posts will be helpful in future. Likewise if your (or any identifiable entity's) posts were normally unhelpful or found to be factually incorrect, one would learn to skip them. So you're not risking your credibility at present, but you are wearing that of all past Anon posters.

    Content stands on its own, regardless who wrote it.
    Quite so. I read your comment when first posted (at least I think I did, that's the problem with Anon), and thought you made an important point. I'm unclear why you would then want to wrap it in obscenities, which are a guarantee to put some off. One could make the case it is Anon who is in ICANN's dugout.

    Your post (again I can only guess we are talking about the same person or post) can still be found by resetting your threshold to [assuming voice of The Count on Sesame Street] Minus 1. Heh heh heh heh. -g

    I hope that you are aware that the PHP-Nuke software used by ICANN Watch is logging IP numbers of all submissions, even anonymous ones. The IP numbers are posted after your name but only visible to a reader with administrator status. That is a standard feature of the software that has to be turned off by the adminstrators if they want to make sure you are anonymous.

    Hence, if you want to make anonymous submissions you need to do them from an IP number that can not be traced back to you.
