Anonymous posts!

I've been catching up on idea features and discussions lately. And I have to
say it's good to be back from the dark side!

But I notice some interesting trends here... What's with the company name
posts?! How about having our favourite developers all sign as 'Thanks,
JetBrains'. It would be fun, no? Even the automated response systems sign
with name these days!
So all of you refactor[XYZ], hibero plugin people, I like what you do, but
first masks off, it is not polite.
</rant>

Peace!

+1 as well. I really prefer to deal with persons rather than company names. It's
been fun to watch for a while, but it's getting real old now.

Folks, it's the internet. If someone is choosing to be anonymous they presumably have a reason, and understand the tradeoffs involved.

Someday they'll be teaching these facts in grade school, if they aren't already.

May be you one of the masks?

Anyway I think almost all forum constant visitors know answers for such questions...

Thanks,

It's of course everybody's own decision what identity to choose on the internet,
but there seem to be people who haven't been told these facts in grade school
and actually consider "artificial" identities to be impolite.

And I think it's just fair to provide this kind of feedback for the simple case
that some with those artificial identities might have chosen them just for fun
and were not aware of the possible implications on their businesses. It's no big
deal, but it almost certainly has a negative psychological impact.

Hmm, I never thought of that... I'm used to seeing Ms. Guzman employ such
techniques in my car forum, but here it's definitely the exception.

So what else could it be... how about conflict of interest :-O, or maybe
fear of provoking thoughts of one where there isn't... And secrecy does not
help even a bit. This very thing has stopped me from even evaluating the
said plugins.

Dave, nothing against you, I believe your inspections have become the next
big thing in IDEA and have propelled it way ahead of the competition. And
you never know, there might be people who would support you just because
your name is in there.

Cheers!

I believe David hinted that if somebody hides behind some virtual they may
have a reason to do so. And those reasons are many.
