4. It inteferes with people's freedom - who has the right to dictate what
name a person (or, for that matter, a group of people) should be known
5. It encourages dishonesty: if you want to contribute but not reveal
your real name, you have the option to lie about it, and can be fairly
confident your lie will never be called.
