Post so many anti Christian forum threads ? Seriously , nice to hide behind the avatar isn't it ? Isn't this just the ways of cowards?
I don't think it has to do with the forums all that much really. It is just smarter to not to use your real name online. I have used my real name from time to time, but I have such a common name and have recently gotten married and changed my last name that it really doesn't matter. You don't want an employer to look you up and see all the things you comment on whether you are atheist, theist or agnostic. At the same time many people may be trying to build up their pen names and such.
I don't post anti Christian threads myself since I am Christian, but if I did that would not be the reason I don't use my real name.
Similar to those who post so many anti-atheist threads?
The Internet as a whole is filled with cowards who say things they would never say to a person to their face.
And, even though I don't attack Christians, you only have to go to my profile to learn my real name.
I have no problem letting people know my real name. Here it is, with my address:
7540 North Linden Lane
Parma, Ohio 44130
Come on over!
I think the real difference is that since we're not face-to-face, we tend to be a little harsher than we otherwise would be. For my part, I try to be polite and stick to facts, rather than ad hominem attacks.
I get charged by the minute, so I don't want unsolicited phone calls. If you're coming over, bring beer. I only have one left.
NP, I will bring beer and puff!
I have to say, it does take some serious courage to post all your personal info on a public forum. Your mailbox is going to be filled with tons of junk. I think that may have been the very first time I have seen anyone do this. Good Luck!
It's filled with junk already, so what's a little more?
But I've been challenged on online forums before, where people accuse me of hiding behind 'net anonymity, and I often give them my name and number. I don't say anything online I wouldn't say in person. I try to be polite, of course. Being rude almost guarentees your message gets dismissed. It may be wishful thinking, but I like to think that if I'm polite, I might get someone to think about what I have to say.
But probably not.
I don't attack anybody, but I do dissent with some ideas of other people. I would act exactly the same if my name were known, but I hide it to protect myself from internet predators (of which there are many). I agree that attackers who hide behind avatars and false names are cowards...that's why they do it, and that's why I don't respond to them anymore.
You do realize that you are also hiding behind an avatar? What would you guys do if you knew who we are? Knock on our doors, pitchforks and torches in hand? That is what I get from this idea for a thread.
Okay, now this is silly. Mark Knowles is the most anti-Christian/anti-religious person on HP and he uses his real name. My real name is right there next to my user ID and I'm not shy about anything I have to say about religion.
This is like trying to start a fight and then crying when you get hit.
Aren't we more mature than that?
And a lot of the attacks aren't even attacks but disagreements.
For pity's sake, if a person has such thin skin that they can't handle the stuff that goes on in this religious forum, then maybe another one would be more suitable.
If you don't agree, you don't agree.
The other thing is that SO many of the so-called 'attacks' from anonymous users are nothing more than bait.
Oh but we do get defensive don't we now ! I too believe any social page type websight promotes a freeing of the inhibitions of the blabbering fools . A little bit of courtesy goes a long ways !
Exactly BAIT and attack , its not questions or searching or wondering , its about devisive interaction that feeds some egotistical satisfaction ! Your either looking or your not , and yet most devisivness in forums is merely juvenile !
No , or perhaps in some individual responses or attacks by some people only , This post is simply in defense of juvenile responses and attacks on Christianity! Personaly I dont follow the biblical directions to spirituality and maybe thats why I see through the thin curtains of antis- , the first three words of a question or furom post tell me exactly what the intention of the poster is . They are usualy just in negative intent !Period !
Started writing using my real name. Only use avatars where requested and Facebook has always had my real name Rasma Raisters. No problem. If you like what I write if you like me OK If you don't go elsewhere.

Should hubber hide behind a name with no real photo?

Why do hubbers go to all the trouble of posting hundreds of hubs, creating really informative profiles then post a picture of their dog, cat, bird, avatar or favourite comic strip character?If I buy a book I get to see the author on the back cover. A photo of the person who has written the work....

So lately I've been doing some digging on the real name of Jesus (long story on how I stumbled on this), and have found very conclusive evidence that his name was indeed Yahshua.His birth name at least. Jesus is merely the transLITERATED name and not the translated name. Translation carry the...

Why some writers don't use their real name for online writing? Is there anything wrong in sharing our real name with others?

Okay .. I have another question I just received an email from someone through HP (not sure if the person is a hubber or not) asking for my real name because the person said he/she was gonna use my hub for a report for class. Should I be suspicious of this? Would you give the...
