(My point: What are CONVICTIONS without real signatures?)
No, I'm not talking about writers who are VULNERABLE (for any number of personal reasons) or even whose lives may be in imminent danger, and they are obliged to use a SHIELD or MASK.
However, in my humble opinion (correct me if I'm wrong -I'm an open memoir & and open door to fellow memoirists) a scribe who cannot sign his name to his or her personal convictions isn't worth much more than a steaming horseball taking a tan in the midday sun.
I'm joking here, so don't get your knickers in a twist & start commenting that I called you a 'horseball'! Yet don't despair if you actually happen to fall into that anonymous category of numbers, letters of the alphabet and cute, sexy, vulgar, menacing, atheistic or spiritual word-bites. Here in the tropical Mexican boonies I crumble dried 'horseballs' (your anonymous 'comments'!) to nurture an ever-growing Garden of Love. Thank ye!
