    I've always used my name, and others on TFF either do likewise or are happy to self-identify.

    Research demonstrates that online opinions and attitudes are more polite, and honest, when this is done.



    This wouldn't occur if people used their real names.

    It would make the forum a better place.

    In the meantime, perhaps 'Rob' will provide his proper name and address so that I may take this issue up with him privately?

    I'm shy. It's as simple as that.
    My online name is a version of the name given to one confident cow in my late suckler herd which, oddly enough, lends the memory of the confidence she had to me.

    What are you afraid of .Do you use your real name of Facebook, it would be so nice if I could say Good Morning ...... so much more polite and civilised

    not if you don't want to because its not a requirement to join TFF
    I do remember one member thought he was really clever when he found out my name, though I would rather be called Steve than Stephen as I told him :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Well I agree with you.
    But,there is always a but,it won't happen,not because of the odd person on the forum that is unpleasant,more so some person at large with an issue with farmers,think,animal rights,badgerists and more.

    not saying its top secret and against forum rules for anyone else to say:whistle::whistle::whistle::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:
    if you just want to say good morning then good morning steve will suffice

    Your name is every bit as revealing as the OP’s, Richard.:censored:

    The OP’s Christian name and a letter, is presumably not his ‘actual name’ either?

    I quite like having an actual photo too, so you can see who is actually writing things, and the photo is of me, in front of the cathedral in Saniago de Compostela, in Northern Spain, after I finished the Camino (way of St James)
