Why Don’t You Put Your Real Name?

If what you say is true why don’t you sign your name too? My feeling is that you are not as impartial as you would like us to believe. My experience in the past has been that when a person hides behind anonymity such as yourself, they have something to hide. Please do us all a favor and really promote Shalom by stopping these mass mailings.

I would tend to agree that sometimes people use anonymity because they have something to hide. In this particular case, I use anonymity because I wish to avoid any of the harassment that, unfortunately, others working on this mitzvah have been subjected to. You too seem to appreciate that anonymity often has a legitimate reason, as I note that you have not attached your name to your comment either.
