Or NOT the norm.
Most users use a screen name.
Some users in the interests of internet security may use an alias.
personal security, business interest security, financial security to name but few.
In fact, in this age of identity theft it is advisable to use an alias.
The handle under which an individual posts is of little consequence.
For example "loveritas" "Pancho Cervantes" neither of which are relevant to any argument or proposition.
All that matters is the logic of the argument.
If a person chooses to use their real name. In that they need to be directly credited with any particular post then that is their choice, and done so at their own risk.
It is for this very reason that the forum rules very wisely dictate that screen names should always be used.
Any breach of security causing loss or harm could leave the GHBM open to litigation.
