I am so sick

Mentally!!!

I spent my morning going through piles of Apache logs and database tables to try to figure out the identity of two anonymous individuals posting in the MBF forum ("3am" and "aaaaaaaaaaaaa" that is). Scanning the IP address and user-agent identification, looping through past records, working out browsing routes, etc. I think I am happy with what I have discovered.

I'm such a loser that does not give any respect to privacy...

On the other hand, I would also like to find out the reasons why people like to hide their identity on-line. I am very sure that there are many reasons why someone would not use their real name on the Internet, beside simply justifications like privacy. What have we got here?
