Speculation with regard to my "real" identity was a given. Just bound to happen, people being what they are, right? No biggie, in the scheme of things. I am sure there are plenty of people who've sussed me out by now, and ninety-nine point seven of them have been cool about it, even happy to see whichever one of my identities they "know" online having a good time. Shit, two or three of you nailed me, like, the first day I posted, back on blogspot. You sent mails. We bonded. It was good.

Know this, though: some very public speculations, however wide of the mark they may or may not be, are not winning any friends or influencing any people over here. I hate that shit; immature online strivings to appear "in the know" are a) pitiable, in an adult, and b) pissing me off. If you just have to wonder, wonder via e-mail, won't you? Or, alternatively, couldn't you just be content to enjoy the occasional show, to let me have a little fun? What do you do for good times, anyway...go around telling four-year-olds that Santa Claus is a big, fat, lie?

The anonymity thing is part of the whole thrill. You want to fuck that up for me? Then go right ahead, you destructive ass. You sure can do it, if you feel you have something to prove. As for my part...you bust me out? To my family, to my community? I will never forget and I will never forgive. I will despise you in some measure until I flatline, and do everything in my admittedly somewhat meager powers to make your life a living hell from now on.

So just cut it the fuck out already.

I have no idea what you're talking about...And I think I'm Glad about that. Just Damn!

I think there's only one side of Queenie to be on; and it's not the bad side!

I have visions of dainty little Queenie, dressed in a demure but colorful ensemble, with pinky extended and in a very ladylike manner, tearing my head off and shitting down the neck hole. For fun and for no other reason. 'Cause lady, I don't want to know who the fuck you are. Not no more. Ungh ugh. And I ain't gonna try and find out, neither. No sir. You can't make me.

I'm going back to my blog now. Shakin' the bush, Queenie. Shakin' the bush...

Oh, and if you try and tell me, I will stick my fingers in my ears and hum nya nya nya nya...

I, though not you, am encountering a minor shitstorm on my own humble blog. I commiserate. Sometimes, I wish I could just unleash the Hashishans...

Personally, couldn't care if you are on the light side of Venus. Just keep being the Queenie I enjoy. Fuck the assholes! Feed 'em fish heads.
I like to shoot at nosy fuckers myself, not to maim, just to make their pants brown.. Jail is nothing to me, and they never find my guns.
I suggest, a good ass whup with the head of a spoonbill...
Keep on girl!

Damn, Lileks. Lighten up.

Don't know why some people can't leave a good thing alone. I enjoy your writing, it's a daily must read for me, but your right, don't let it be a "bust out" for you. You and your family are much more important.

Pox on whoever is plaguing you!

Leave it to Velociman to have the funniest reply to this post.

As for who you are...even if I knew I probably still wouldn't know who you are and it just never occurred to me to try to figure out "who the blogger really is" on people's obviously very anonymous sites.

I like it anonymous. I wish to hell I had stayed anonymous. Thankfully only a handful know me and I appear to have pissed most of them off so they don't stop by anymore. And that makes me pretty damn happy.

I don't know, I don't want to know even if your Acidman in drag.

Acidman in drag

Well, didn't that just put me off my feed...

I've just been reading and enjoying your blog for a couple weeks and wasn't even aware that your identity is a secret. And now that I know that, I have done some soul searching, for like two secs, and don't care.
You bring up an interesting point though. I have wondered if it's possible to keep your identity secret. Even on emails. I mean short of getting crosswise with the FBI or whatever, I wondered if anonominity? was possible.
Especially since we have been trying to unionize where I work and I would have liked to have posted some anonymous stuff.
So from reading your posting I see it's not possible. Well, I hope no one messes it up for you.
I don't think I have the nerve to write what I think even if I knew I couldn't be named.
So keep it up, we enjoy it.
