A garb of anonymity can reduce the strength of a post or message.

Being un-anonymous has the potential for backlash from an agency or two, those that can't handle or won't respond to a post that is directed at them.

On balance I prefer to be myself - won't hide behind anonymity because I would rather say my mind and handle any consequences than go the other way around.  But to each his own.  This must be an individual decision for each of us to make. However, being anonymous should not be considered a right to become willful and offensive to any others including any agencies - because that in the long run would diminish the impact of this forum.  Anonymous or not we best serve ourselves in this forum by being forthright and direct, but within acceptable parameters of language and content.

What a place with no login or IDs? If you mean private, anyone, especially an agency person can join, so there goes the privacy. How would you screen people for allowing anonymous, if they are unknown?

If you want to see how low down and nasty some people are, you might have asked, who's been turning in the anonymous people here? Perhaps someone who was a regular who knew people and was trusted with identities?

Just a theory of course. But not any more distant that assuming agencies would spend time finding people, just to close accounts.

I'm still for no anonymous accounts and let that be a way that self moderation will work. If you have a grudge against an agency, find somewhere less reputable and less interested in working and earnings. I'd be just fine if all the attacks and accusations towards agencies were gone. Someone start an anonymous forum and let this one be for intelligent conversations about some more like a prefessional business attitude.

Not an anonymous playground for personal attacks and libelous accusations towards agencies.


After the dollar photo club punishment to several members,  are you afraid the agencies are watching and you no longer speak freely?

Is it several members now? How many?

I don't know many yes men who strive for anonymity.

How would they gain corporate favor, if no one knows who they are?

It's the quality and expression of an opinion which matters. Not whether a person is anonymous or not. Much of the spitefulness, ranting and negativity tends to be from people who are not anonymous.

Three things would improve the forum IMO:

1. Get rid of negative voting.

2. A word limit - to discourage random essays and to encourage better writing.

3. Limit the number of posts in order to encourage relevance.

I agree on that.
especially "PPM"

"posts per minute"

there is a time/ quality relation.

Has anyone been punished for being critical of a site as opposed to being engaged in activities against the site's commercial interests?

How do you tell the difference?  Some site might think anyone posting critical of them in a forum is "against the site's commercial interests".
