Eight years ago when our grandchildren were teens they logged in to this forum to see just what The Villages were all about when we said we were moving here and read my posts.

Kids know a LOT about US. Yes they do. There is also an Urban Dictionary readily available on the net.
My question here is why do so many people using TOTV use a fake name. Do they do this so it will be possible to hide from their comment ? I personally cannot think of any other reason.

Kids must stay up late enough to see the commercials I do about painful intercourse and erectile dysfunction.

It also could be fear of retribution. When I say fear of retribution I am not talking about an honest difference of opinion. I can cite hundreds of examples of people that used their real names on the internet and have been bullied, assaulted, raped and even murdered because a person could track them down through their name.

It is offensive to some women. I am not the least bit offended by them.

Anyone with a decent amount of knowledge about the internet SHOULD prefer to remain anonymous. Here are a few excerpts from articles about internet anonymity:

"Anonymity is important to anyone who doesn't want every facet of their online life tied to a Google search of their name. It is important to anyone who is repulsed by the idea of an unrelenting data broker logging everything she has ever said, or shown interest in, in a permanent marketing profile."

"To suggest anonymity should be forbidden because of troll-noise is just as bad as suggesting a ban on protesting because the only demonstrators you have ever encountered are from the Westboro Baptist Churchthe trolls of the picket world. People who say otherwise need to widen their experience and understanding of the online world. The online spaces we know and love would be doomed without anonymity, even if the security of that anonymity is far from absolute or impenetrable."

And let's not forget the ever present message board bullies. EVERY board has them, including this one. Personally, I don't care for them to have access to private details of my life.

I am not either. They are from another age and time. I am a redblooded American woman who is in a monogamous marriage to a red blooded man for 53 years,



I have always felt equal.

He may be offended, (I doubt it) but I am not.

Well said. I think women are more degraded by throwing the victim card around than by some silly sign.

Yes... I remember them marching across the bridge at Selma. If I recall, their high heels kept getting caught in the grating...

Maybe we could get an ACLU member to crawl out from under his/her rock and check in on this. There must be some fodder for federal legislation and a new enforcement agency.
