Well, I haven't wanted to bring it up, [redacted], as I know it's been painful for you, but, have you stopped beating your wife?

...exposing real names
Everyone has a flagship issue, if you don't know by now what Jack Carter's is, you really REALLY haven't been paying attention.
What can you get out of that?
Kinky make-up sex.
C'mon. Do you think that a serious accusation? That's a joke that's been around since there have been husband and wives. It's much less worse than Ray accusing people of stealing if they believe in taxes, an accusation he has made seriously repetitively ad infinitum.
the past convictions are admissible.
Click on Ray (RDP) above. What do you see in the screenname history? When did Ray stop using that name?
A poster, it seems, to me can't change his name, but maintain his identity, as well as every name he's ever used, all set out in his profile, with an expectation that everyone will transmogrify into a state of amnesia suddenly pretend that he's a different person, and erase all associations and appellations.
I readily admit I didn't know Ray had changed his name, and I very well could have referred to him by the name he used before (which we don't know is his real name, anyway). A poster, it seems, to me can't change his name, but maintain his identity, as well as every name he's ever used, all set out in his profile, with an expectation that everyone will transmogrify into a state of amnesia suddenly pretend that he's a different person, and erase all associations and appellations. That's an risk he assumed when he decided to post under the other name to start with. But if that's what he expects, that we pretend we don't know him or his name that he made numerous posts for years under, then he needs to at least expunge all those alternate names and alias, and go all out in creating another identity, making sure that we never know who he used to be. And maybe nicely remind us that he doesn't want to be referred to by that name he made 20,000 posts under. Otherwise, it becomes a mug's game.

You know, you could resolve all this by simply having all posts appear under the simple rubric of "Anonymous". No other names at all. If fact, I'd be for that--then you wouldn't have any of these "well, he has a history". You just deal with the merits of what is written in a specific instance and no more. As it is, it's like so many posters here never heard of critical thinking. I don't think the owner of this site likes all these off-topic discussion, particularly those of the political stripe, and many others whole-heartedly and vehemently agree with him. This would discourage a lot of frustrated wannabe columnists. It would clear the floor of amateurs seeking a spotlight in order to glitter with the glory of the hummingbird.
That's the issue here, in the last few days Good Face, Joe K, and Jack Carter have deliberately included the full name of a poster who uses a handle while making a negative/controversial charge against them in blatantly obvious attempts to make them show up in search engines. It's petty and malicious.
I suppose to forestall the likely objections by Joe K: Yes, I fully support your right to request Jim's intervention if you feel like someone is getting out of line with their comments towards you. If it's a problem, report it. Jim is pretty hands-off about these things unless they get seriously out of hand (which I like) so it's generally up to us to request his attention if we're feeling that someone's comment towards us is out of line.
That's why what Joe, Good Face, and Jack Carter did is so wrong, they're not only ignoring the reasonable and easily satisfied wishes of those people but they're deliberately inserting negative statements to go along with the full names so that someone Googling that person may not only find BTF and all their activity on it but might also see someone accusing that person of being an anti-semite, wife beater, or one of the nastiest people on the internet.
The whole point is that searching for Ray's real name in Google does not bring up BTF results in the first few pages, which is what he and the others are preferring to avoid. Most people here know his real name and as was pointed out above you can find it out just by clicking on his member profile but the handle prevents him being easily searched for. That's the issue here, in the last few days Good Face, Joe K, and Jack Carter have deliberately included the full name of a poster who uses a handle while making a negative/controversial charge against them in blatantly obvious attempts to make them show up in search engines. It's petty and malicious.
