Just because you're registered, there is no way anyone would know who you are, unless YOU reveal information about yourself. All it takes is an email address, which email address is not known to anyone other than admins, unless YOU make it public. The reason to register at this point is to be able to participate in this board, period.




This is absolutely correct. Your posting name can have nothing to do with anything related to SXM. One big benefit of registering is being able to do PMs if you are REALLY interested in the island.

I've met a grand total of 2 TTOL posters and in both cases the meetings were in the US.

Make up a posting name like tipunchfan and no one will ever know who you are. You have absolutely nothing to lose and plenty of options to gain.

charlie--in your circumstance, you have a picture of yourself, so people on island THEORETICALLY might be able to recognize you. But, that is totally voluntary. There is no requirement to fill in anything on the profile or anywhere else. Literally the ONLY information one has to provide is an email address. And that is only known to admins, not to anyone on the board, unless YOU put it in your profile.

Carol - my picture is in place so that people will feel sorry for me.

Obviously it isn't too hard to have multiple email addresses. I have 4 that I use for various reasons and of course, they are all free.

Hey, if you want people to feel sorry for you, just remind them that you are a Tar Heels fan....

I think I read the post that you speak of and I had the same reaction, but I have read a lot of anon posts that have helped me about things on the island. We will be heading there in a little over two weeks and the polls as well as the posts still help when we decide what to do and what to take. There might come a time when it might be decided to not allow them, but as with us who are registered, if we all behave we will reap the rewards of a very nice discussion of SXM and things there. If not we should lose our right to post.

Pat, that post was a vile attack....

Even though most times I post without being signed in I always post my name & Canadian flag....it is only fair when using a public forum to identify oneself.....kate

Kate - you are a very rare exception to an anon poster, as everyone knows who you are. I just looked and there are currently 36 registered posters and 82 anon posters.

The biggest downside to being a registered poster is forgetting your password whenever it may be needed. However I almost never have to sign in as it is pretty much automatic.

Anons who live on the island can be hugely helpful, and I think even more so if they are registered.
