I guess it is pure coincidence but I feel that the behavior here on this forum actually became much worse over the last weeks despite(!) the use of real names. (Just take a look into some of the HD subforums (RED cough cough) or the Miami Vice thread, some super 8 topics etc.)

Since I still don't see the point and consider privacy a value on its own..

Later, you wont be missed...sorry if I am jerky but I don't think it is a huge deal to give your real name.

I don't think it a huge deal either. In fact I think it's a courtesy towards other people.

Anonymity can have it's place...but this is a working professional forum and I think we should stick by our statements. Also if any of us ever bump into each other, we'll know it.

...but this is a working professional forum........

Given some of the long threads recently on everything but Cinematography I would like to confess that I've been part of some of them - and I hereby take a solemn vow to stay the H**L out of threads that don't further the profession.

Sworn this 13th Day of September in the year of Our Lord 2006.
