I've been hanging out here a few weeks. Can I get some back and forth on registering versus staying anonymous?

If you're a hot blonde I know an anonymous poster who will give you some back and forth.

You get more respect as registered user. Many registered users are tired of dealing with annon posters...its like they have something to hide.

So, if there's no advantage to being an anonymous poster why are they permitted?

The main advantage to registering is so folks can't impersonate you.

The main advantage to not registering is that it's anonymous unless you get outed.

Not everyone wants to engage on the site. Most people are lurkers.

It's still anon if you register. Big advantage to registering...no spam code to enter. You get access to the private message feature as well, so other registered posters can message you privately. Well, at least private from the forum, nothing is private to Cary, the site admin. But then, Admins are like God for computers. (they see all, if they want)

Well... you're unregistered so this is a strange question...

It's cool that you DON'T have to register to post on this site... It's really rare to find a site that isn't trying to get as much information out of you as possible to make a buck off of you...

The fact that anyone can come on here and post something encourages more people to post... which leads to more information for everyone...

Not all registered users ignore anonymous users, just some.

Why is that? Seriously?

You personally aren't bad (I think)..as far as I can tell always use the same name.

It's the users that change their name with their mood that get me. I can't keep up with who is who and frankly, I lose interest in reading their posts.

If you're female don't register. And if you don't know what I'm talking about, look at almost any post on this forum.

Just thought of one more thing........registered or unregistered, it doesn't really matter.


Evidently we're all eesh and eesh is all of us.


That said.......hello NOVAlurkereesh.

(wtf? can someone clue me on as to how eesh got such a bad rap? Is he simply the last guy standing from several pissing contests or what?)

You all have failed to mention the bonuses we get for registering.

Well, if you play it like eesh, you could:

1) Create a couple dozen registered IDs to post under.

and -

2) Use about 20 anonymous IDs each day to respond to your own posts to make a subject appear as if it's getting lots of attention from various responders.

Maybe, eesh can give you some more tips. He's kind of the veteran poster here and knows all the tricks of the trade.
