Just to remind readers that my name is Simon Webb and that my personal email address is;
Every list I join and every Blog upon which I comment, I always use my own name. How different, how very different, from many of the people who are commenting here! I find this particularly ironic in view of the fact that various individuals are now emailing the select committee claiming that I "infiltrated" the HE-UK list. Luckily, Mehetabel has helpfully put up a few old posts of mine there and it can be seen that I did not infiltrate this message board at all. Just used my home email address and usual name.
I have never been over-enamoured of those who write letters which they are ashamed to sign with their own name. I wonder if some of the people coming on here and making offensive comments would be brave enough to start using their own names? I have no moderation at all on this Blog and it is a team Blog, anybody can apply to become an author. I hope that people will remember this and not abuse this openess.
