Why be anonymous? Three reasons:
1) I can comment without restraints that might be imposed by other roles I perform in my profession
2) I can avoid nasty emails and heated debates at conferences and meetings. I imagine my physical safety could be an issue with a few of the comments I have made
3) it's fun

I believe (and hope) that anonymity does not reflect on credibility. People can judge me by the quality of my content and my arguements, and the integrity of my position. I stand behind those. I welcome debate and criticism in order to refine those further.

One of my main criticisms of the ITIL movement is the attitude of some of the most senior people that we should listen because of who they are, and that they know better because of who they are. (And they know who they are). Who I am is irrelevant; judge me on what I say and do.
