I never claimed to be a "netiquette" expert (whatever that is), however, it does bother me every time you make a big deal over someone posting anonymously. Some people need time before they leave personal info on a web site and it doesn't help to have someone mock them when they do. Sorry if my message insulted your sensibilities, maybe now you know how you make them feel.
