You ask why some of us use pen names, and false photos. Well, some of us are not as pretty as you are! But really, when I first posted on Atheist Nexus (not here) the post went immediately to the list you get when you google my name. That may have been OK, but the words that appeared were comments to which I was responding, not MY OWN words. So, under my name is a quote with which I strongly disagree. If you click on it you will get the full statement of the other writer AND my response. Otherwise, you are left with a mistaken impression of my opinions. My discussions are only for those to whom I choose to communicate, not everyone who googles me. I'm OUT as an atheist, but that googly experience invaded my privacy and misinterpreted my viewpoint.
