How many of us have secret identities on the board? I have two that I use from time to time - both female names.

How many others have them?

I don't know, Rich - I like to go by my only one secret identity, which everyone knows.

No secret identities anywhere. I practice persistent pseudonymity, because 1) sockpuppeting is terrible, and 2) I probably wouldn't be able to remember the differences between the various versions of me.

I knew that, but would never reveal it.

I am who I am. No secret IDs.

Don't use a big word where a diminutive one will suffice.

Don't the guidelines prohibit that?


sandwiches that are large and filling and do not contain tuna or prawns

I think most of us have alternative personas on different forums.    I never thought about duplicate personalities here.   Orik is pretty good at sleuthing out fraud.    Isn't there enuf room for verbal horseplay and mischief under one name?

Clark needed one for all his mischief making and one for his mild-mannered self.

Naw. Keep people off-guard with your split personality.

It's getting more difficult since there are no more phone booths.

I’m not smart enough.
Summarizing, then, we assume that relational information is not subject to a corpus of utterance tokens upon which conformity has been defined by the paired utterance test.
