Anonymity? note to James
More from James:
Thanks for the clarification. In this situation it means a lot to be clear about one’s intentions.
As to SK I was left wondering myself, and thought it some TV charade???
As to New York and a meeting: thanks a lot for the gesture, but I am not there but on Long Island fending off a snow storm’s aftermath.
I think you should keep in touch on an occasional basis: it is important to keep the challenge to the Darwinian paradigm from being hounded or ignored out of existence.
As to anonymity: sometimes, if your disguise has been penetrated (as I think it has) it can help to step out into public view, as a different kind of self-defense.

I never said I was departing forever, only that I probably wouldn’t post for a long time. I never thought of myself as being more than a casual reader and it has gotten to the point where I am just talking in circles. As I’ve said before, I think you’re doing a good job and I don’t think it is any exaggeration to say that you’re probably the smartest person I’ve conversed with on the Internet or in real life. You never really needed any contribution from me.
By the way, I am in NYC for awhile, and while I’m extremely apprehensive about giving up my Internet anonymity to anyone, I may be willing to meet up if you’re willing to meet up. You may have your own reservations here so I merely mention it as a possibility.
P.S. SK is definitely a woman. Last year, I was staying a few blocks away from her store in LA, so I thought I woulddrop in. I never told her who I am. I was only there for a few minutes and, of course, the brief encounter doesn’t give me the right to say this definitively, but she seemed fine.
