almost every time i read a post on the forum here, i look at the username of the person associated with that post. then when i read through the post, i keep in mind who has written it, in order to give it more or less importance, or decide to formulate my reply.
this is arguably a form of prejudice, so i was thinking a wee bit (dangerous stuff)
what about if a number of forum regulars were to put their names down in this thread, then after a sufficient number (5 or 10, whatever), they all had to create a new account on the forum and post under this alias. they would have to put in a reasonable number of posts (20 or 30) over the next day and the other forum regulars would guess which member belonged to which 'mystery' account
for example, say if members called "1, 2, 3, 4 and 5" put their names down
they would each create a guest account called "mystery1, mystery2 etc..."
