Hee, as I'm just waiting for time to pass till it's 10:30pm and I can take my cold meds before going to bed (not craving pity - yet), I checked how many times my profile had been viewed by now - the figure's somewhere over 800 now. I cannot tell whether that's a lot or not, but I can tell it's a lot more than people that have actually commented on here. So either my posts are really boring, or people would rather comment if they were able to do so anonymously.
The reason why I've disabled anonymous comments simply is that I've seen how some anonymous commentors have behaved on other blogs. Sorry, I won't bother with that. Don't say something online you wouldn't tell a person face-to-face.
The reason why I'm not putting a picture online is that I've seen people copy pictures of people and use them on other sites. (My sis only just yesterday found her picture from her homepage posted on the start page of a social networking site - they ascribed her a wrong last name though. One cannot confuse a punim like hers...) If you don't want your own picture on a profile, don't upload a picture. Anybody who'd like to see a picture of me may contact me on here or at dibbuk[at]web[dot]de.
