As an employee of a state legislature, I'd love to post anonymously in this thread, but I don't know if that is possible.

Will we all just promise to not think the one anonymous poster is you? I'm game.

No, it's not.

Your sockpuppet could though.

Oh yeah, Divine_Wino, I guess that is a big element to consider huh.

Matt, my sockpuppet ran away.

In the future, perhaps email another member that you trust to keep your secret and s/he can post for you.

Five more bucks, dude. You have to decide if it's worth it.

Don't kill yourself. Just check his profile. It's pretty damn obvious from his place of residence.

Don't kill yourself.

Ain't got enough Klonopin yet, anyway.

At your size, cortex, you'd need less than a pound. What're you, too lazy to save up a mere pound of Klonopin?

As commander of an aircraft carrier battlegroup, I would be interested in posting anonymously in threads on nautical topics. Would it make much difference if:
a) The ships exist solely in my head
b) The ships exist solely in my bathtub

...and as a corallary, would some of my hand-drawn still-lifes of these ships have any influence on the respect accorded me by other users?

Obviously if an anon post comes up now, we'll all know it was yours. So just go ahead and spill it. :P

Note to luriete: hundertwasser, typesetter and letterpress should not be considered for your sock puppet.

I recommend that you name your sock puppet "Anonymous Employee of a State Legislature."
