Bad form

It is widely regarded as a breach of netiquette to try and out an anonymous blogger.

So, Brummietory - behave! And stop spamming my blog. Comments are fine - and are welcome. Spam will always be deleted.

I'm not going to make any comment on the names he listed in a recent post - not to confirm or deny any of them.

Regret that I don't understand this post. What spamming? What names? Why neither confirm or deny?

Seconded. Someone seeking to out another blogger should bear in mind that they could be affecting that person's livelihood. Outing anonymous bloggers doesn't improve the level of debate as it merely drives it further underground.

Richard: A certain blogger has posted a couple of comments which are simply 'visit my blog at...'

If the blogger wants a link, he can ask and I'll slap one on the list - as long as I get one in return.

Confirming or denying any of the names listed in a posting on that blogger's site would simply help to identify who I am. I don't wish to do that - my choice.
