I have the right to say what I please, on any topic I please. I have that right because I choose to claim and exercise it. I have the right to express myself without fear of the local villagers marching up to my gate with their torches and farm implements, and that requires anonymity, which I also claim as my right.
Far better a forum where some are offended than one where no one dare speak. I am, by the way, often offended - easily and profoundly. When I am offended I take comfort in the data published in my ephemeris. This shows me over and over again that, no matter how offended any of us may be, the sun will continue to rise and set at the expected time - thus demonstrating the relative impact of our sensitivity on the universe.
Get some perspective. Is it more important that the forum operator (or operator's employer) know who I am or that they know what I have to say?
It's not my job to prove the world is round - it's my job to help the Flat-Earthers find the edge.
