Original OSNews Interviews In the past, OSNews' interview volume was quite a bit higher than it has been lately. I had the pleasure of having lunch with Eugenia and her husband last week, and she mentioned that we haven't done as many interviews, and that in the past they were always very popular. So I decided that I'm going to make it a personal priority to publish more interviews. I'd like to crowdsource the idea, and ask the OSNews community who they'd like to see us interview. Please let us know in the comments of this story who you'd like us to talk to, and what specific questions you'd like us to ask. Shoot for the moon. It's not as hard to get an email-based interview as you might think. Obviously OS-world luminaries will always be a priority, but feel free to recommend people from the larger tech community, or even geek-oriented popular culture.

Personally, I would rather read sbergman27's comments without knowing his identity than read the poorly presented, insulting and logically unsound drivel that you too frequently are inclined to drool forth onto the pages of this website.

I don't comment here often; I don't contribute articles. In fact, one of the few times that I felt compelled to comment was on an occasion that I disagreed with sbergman27. However, having had the opportunity to gauge the comments of both you and him, I would say that he must have to stoop rather low to reply to you.

Whatever issuing authority granted you a gun license should have their collective heads examined. Your apparent zealotry seems to seriously interfere with your ability to think rationally.

If you're not comfortable with aliases, then the internet is not the place for you. Considering that Steve gives his full name, and you do not, I am left wondering how many holes your glass house must have in it by now. You seem to throw a lot of stones.

A person's identity has no bearing on the legitimacy and correctness of comments they may make on the internet. Either they are right, they are wrong, or they have an opinion on a subjective matter that is neither right or wrong. Evaluating which of these is the case does not require an identity.

Quite frankly, I don't blame anyone that does not want to use their real identity on the internet. Any lunatic that can work a computer can access the internet, and some of these lunatics would gladly stalk or attack someone because of things that they have said. It has happened, and will happen again. Personally I'd rather not look over my shoulder every day wondering if I'm being pursued by some lowlife that disagrees with me.

Finally...

You really should settle down. Life is too short to waste away on zealotry over an operating system. Give it a rest before you blow an O-ring. Enjoy yourself.
