    On the whole this forum is very civilised. But there have been times when anonymity took its toll. This article in the Observer about how people behave in anonymous forums is quite interesting.

    How many times have we all cursed the boss, under our breath? But when we speak to him or her we are the model of politeness. Anon. who rant on about people on the web are really no different. They are to scared to identify themselves, because of the consequences – that is why we go along with the boss to their faces at least. I ignore rants and if they persist I leave the forum.
