Some Linux Today readers have raised questions about anonymous postings in LT talkbacks after articles appeared at other sites in the last few weeks. I'd like to clear the air.

I participated in Linux Today talkbacks anonymously in the past using a pseudonym. My goal was to foster lively debate. I used pseudonyms like George Tirebiter which I believed readers would understand was a contrivance. Some people did not catch on. Others were offended by Tirebiter's comments.

On reflection, I have to admit that anonymous posting by an editor at a news site was wrong. I stopped months ago and vow to LT readers that I will never engage in the practice again. It is too important you can trust what you read here.

I sincerely apologize to those of you who were offended by my actions.
