Well, my thoughts are (I remember the old Usenet days when cypherpunks
used all their real names) if I would start to use now a pseudonym 3rd parties,
trained in that area, could easily identify me with the help of software, when
collecting threads from various places where cypherpunks, activists etc.
post on public places. And in case I would start now (here) under another
identity it would be super hard for me to write under a second persona.

But in general you are right, people should do that and public places like
Mailing Lists should also support injecting messages, via whitelisted
anonymous Remailers.
