I've called out a couple of anonymous readers/posters tonight, and I'd like to extend that invitation to all of you who have posted anonymously to step out of the shadows. Especially if you like to attack other people under cover.
Now, I have no problem with people who wish to remain anonymous to post questions about the best inline skates to buy, where the closest tournaments are, how they can find a league in their area, etc. Keep on keepin' on, people. I don't need to know who you are, and neither do IHC's readers. There are certain sites that I visit where I simply want the answer to a simple question -- I don't necessarily want to get involved with the politics of the day, or to give up my name and identity. I understand that completely.
On the other hand, on a site like this that is designed to grow the great sport of inline hockey, anonymous posters who trash and bash other people, tournaments, whatever -- we don't need 'em. If they will simply send an e-mail to me, privately, off the record, I'll look into their complaint and see if there's anything I can do to solve it. I think my (nearly) 11 years at Inline Hockey Central, three years at InLine Hockey News, one year at Roller Hockey magazine, and six months or so at Hockey Player magazine (since about 1992) prove that I care about this sport, that I want to see it grow, and that I'm a man of my word.
I'll put the feet of the "powers-that-be" to the fire. Frankly, I have very little to lose. No one owns me, because no one has bought me... IF I were capable of being bought. I've had so little support from the industry in general overall since 1998 that I sometimes question my sanity -- but never my commitment!
Try me. If I don't come through, then post anonymously and bash me. I'd deserve THAT.
