who's who?

I find it fascinating that only one other subscriber was willing to identify him-/herself by name.

What's up?

Denis,

The explanation in my case is innocent.
Inspired by the identity Alberich00 and Wagner's fascination with aliased names
I playfully hybridized a Feuerbach-Wagner alias.

It would be nice if registration requested actual names for inspection in the member list.

Dear Denis and Trevor:

Not wishing to remain nameless, alberich00, long known to members of various Wagner discussion forums of the 2000's as the infamous Wagner scholar Paul Heise, now openly declares his true identity, let the chips fall where they may.

Yours from Wagnerheim,

Paul

Because alias are far more interesting. Also, you will often find that there are a number of interested people who will simply not dispute the conclusions of a "named" registrant if that name is thought to be an "expert" in a particular field. At least that has been my finding.

Also, certain posters may belong to a profession wherein public discussion is actually monitored (or the use of dictated to some degree) as part of their professional code of conduct or registration. Something that can throw-up all sorts of complications. Thus existing as an alias can simply make their life easier.

To be honest, I find the discussion to generally be far more interesting than who makes it, but that might be just me of course
