In reply to:
I never really considered this till power2charm stated it repeatedly -
(it being his policy, and that which he believes to be the correct policy, and that which I have adopted on the basis of moral agreement rather than peer pressure, as you should also)
It is bad form to 'out' an 'alter-ego', or 'multiple-identity'.
For the health of the message board, and the maintenance of 'in-jokes', and *so* many more reasons...
I think at least some of us (er, just me) have observed this for several years, but this rule, irrc, predates the emergence of ultra-sucky alter egos which began with the invasion of Karmastarman &c.
If it's evident that virtually everyone disapproves of such alter egos, should we puncture their crappy personae early on, or continue to allow those kindly/good-hearted/retarded TWers who answer their beck and call to interact with them? (Later, I believe p2c advised that perpetrators of 'naive' alter egos should take a razor and bleed neatly into the sink, though he said nothing of their disclosure.)
And in case the answer is they should remain concealed, I hasten to add that this question is not at all prompted by recent posts in the fora.
