Just because you may know the real name of someone from an internet forum, does not make it OK to use it, repeatedly, when reponding to them, if that person uses (and goes by) their screenname/another name consistently.

Yes, nothing on the internet is anonymous, but it is not up to others, or you, to disclose that information.
****************
But what about when that person has divulged very personal information about him/himself in a board here at the Fool? Shouldn't they be more careful? If you really want anonymity, don't give out clues.
