There are many reasons for encouraging, or even enforcing, non-anonymity 
on a forum. Some of them are good. Ancient Convention is -- no offense 
-- not one of them. :)

This NG is not plagued by spam, trolls or hit'n'runs, so I see no reason 
to require non-anonymity.

But who knows, maybe acts of terrorism are being planned inbetween lines 
of D code in this very forum? (Oh no, did I just bring us to the 
Attention of the Authorities?)
