Well Wendy, it shits me that Google might drag up this thread and lead someone to see just a few of the posts and think you're all talking about me. I don't post here that much, for various reasons, but plenty of people in the climbing community know me as Damo and I post - and argue and rant - on other sites as Damo.

I think arguments on a site should be kept on-site and names accordingly. If ODH posts under that name, gets plaudits and brickbats under that name, then on the site he should be referred to under that name during issues that pertain to him, because it's all specific to him. Consistency avoids confusion.

Although I generally dislike people not using their real names, or an abbreviation or approximation, it's the way of the internet, has been for years, and with some good reason. There are plenty of people on this and other sites that I know personally and/or have climbed with and I deliberately do NOT refer to them by their real name in threads. I respect that they may not want that done, thus the reason they have a 'moniker'.
