Um, look. I'm kind of busy here. I'm trying to finish up at work so that I can meet friends for dinner.
"That's all fine and dandy, but I just need a brief moment of your time."
Okay, what can I do for you?
"A quick question, really. I'm hip to the jive of leaving comments now - by the way, thanks again for that. So helpful."
Really, it was nothing. What's the question?
"Well, you know how I'm posting anonymously?"
"Well, can you tell who I am when I leave my message?"
Uh, do you even know what anonymous means?
"I'm fairly sure I've got the meaning right. But I didn't sign my message, and although I feel deeply certain that my distinctive voice will come through and you'll know exactly who I am, I was just wondering if that might ever cause confusion."
Not meaning to offend you in any way, I probably won't get who you are from your comment unless it's in-joke riddled (two years and out!). While it's not strictly necessary that I know who leaves comments, I'd like to. So, if you do post anonymously, then if you could sign your post, that'd be super cool. Just a little thing.
"Righty-o, then. Just checking in! Have a great night out."
Thanks, you too!
