Ok I've added a signature. Now I should be free to dispense knowledge for as long as I'm alive.

Question Tim: How will you know if people are using their real name? I mean a handle is easy to spot, but some one can create an account using a false name that sounds real like, "Ralph Goodale."

The only real way around it is to make people register with a credit card so you can at least verify their name. Plus that will help cut down on the number of teens floating around here.

I think my problem is lack of signature. I hope it's OK now.

I, too, would like to keep my membership.

This is a great forum. I've learned so much from it. I am mostly lurking as I don't feel like I have much wisdom to contribute. Yet.

You're right. This has been discussed in detail here, I think about six months ago.

If we find out somebody's using a faux name, their account will be deleted immediately.

I don't know, I like to lurk and read. If I see something I like and I feel I have something worth posting, I'll do that.

I'm here to learn mostly.

Tim, this is your forum and you can do what you want to. I feel I have done my best to contribute to the exchange here. I have posted information to help everyone who is a filmmaker. I have offered critique and shared my expirence. I have also had some intense disagreements that have resulted in harsh words and ruffeled feathers. Because of this, I feel I can't be honest with my opinions or feelings due to the fact that Hollywood is a small community. Should I have an opinion that rubs someone the wrong way as my opinion about Al Jazerra and the Iraq war did David Mullens, for example, then there is always the possibility that that can translate into real world consequences. Suppose I wanted to hire or get a job on David's crew, but because of some opinion of mine he read on this forum, he atomatically assumes I'm a jerk, he turns down the job or hires someone else, see what I mean. I use David only as an example but it could be anyone here. This is a forum of professionals and I'm not willing to wreak my reputation over some off handed remark I made on the internet so I will be censoring my comments and opinions anytime any controvesial subject arrises. If that's what you want, a forum where everything is filtered through fear of someone taking exception to what is being said, so be it. I think your forum will loose much of it's spontinaity and liviliness. I was told I was being considered for the private "professional" section of this forum at one time and all I had to do was put down give my real name, these are the reasons I didn't then dispite the honor I felt at being considered. If you feel it would be in the best interest of this forum to deleat my account there is nothing I can do about it. I have enjoyed posting here and will miss everyone. Thanks-James Steven Beverly AKA Capt. Video. B)

I fully support Tim. This is a forum for exchange of information. If you are not willing to take responsibility for what you say by using your real name, then you have no business posting here. There are many of you who hide behind the internet in order to voice your opinions inflame others.

Simply put, if you are adult enough to argue, you need to be adult enough to be own up to your actions and words.
