Forget my own head if it weren’t nailed on

March 12, 2007

A recent email from Larry Sanger:

All,

It occurs to me that a few of you might not be participating on the wiki (http://pilot.citizendium.org/) because you lost your username. Well, it’s no bother for us to look it up for you. If you have forgotten yours, simply drop a quick mail to constables at citizendium.org and we’ll send it to you. Then you can easily have your password sent to you, and get involved!

–Larry

Hang on. Citizendium requires all users to register with their real names, and always has done; it’s one of the fundamental principles of the site. Not only that, but there is a standard format for all Citizendium usernames: “Firstname Lastname”.

So.. why does Larry think that people are forgetting their own names?
