IMHO, the username Anonymous should not be allowed -- even for Dick Eastman. My problem with its use is that I have no way of knowing if one person or 100 persons are using the same username Anonymous.
Everyone should have a unique username. It absolutely does not need to be their real name. Bottom line is that, if I'm participating in a discussion here, I want to know that I'm exchanging words with TigerDirect, GentleJoe and SweetLily as opposed to the possibility that I'm exchanging with Anonymous not knowing I'm dealing with three different people.
