You're missing the point. Since when is your made up username
As for the limited version of identity, a person's words (posts) are linked to that. And the reason I am complaining is that sometimes it is confusing when you have nothing but a bunch of (account closed)s in a thread to follow along.
Not to mention that it becomes impossible to google that person for code he wrote in an old post for no other reason than you can't remember his username.
|I don't think it's up to you to decide if it matters or not.|
Since when is it up to me? You are twisting an argument that...
|In fact I don't understand what you're talking about with the "limited to accuracy" and why removing your username is not just that.|
Oh, that's right, you don't understand what I'm talking about. Like the ad-homenim? Stop trolling and contribute with a real argument.
Whom does it hurt, and how does it hurt him/her, to have a made-up
name attached to an old post?
I personally don't belive in rewriting history. That's the reason Americans are so dumb about their place in the world -- their history textbooks have been rewritten to make them the good guys.
And why yuppie kids think they are so smart on the internet.
Funny how you are all anti-censorship 'don't mess with the flow of information' elsewhere but now you want to censor knowledge of who said what in the past. Care to explain this apparent incongruity? Why does my suggestion offend you so?
...and to finish your argument against me -- I never suggested people be refused the power to erase themselves if they want:
/me wants to prevent others from remembering all the time I spend interacting with them on the forum
/me changes my username to something incomprehensible
/me terminates account
/me pats self on back for being so smart
