On a different vein, I'm a fan of disclosing true identity of posters. 
I've staunchly done that ever since my first post on the Usenet, and 
have never been sorry. When I attended my first conference I was already 
notorious following my posts on comp.lang.c++.moderated. It has 
definitely helped my career.

People who end up making solid contributions to D do end up mentioning 
their identity, and it would be very nice to e.g. take a look at strtr's 
work on spiking neural networks (of which I know nothing about) so I get 
better insights into what (s)he's talking about.
