A shorter explanation might be common laziness or lack of creativity to post a catchy handle.That's my opinion I might be wrong.

Hello Neuman.

"The history of anonymous expression in political dissent is both long and honourable, as in the Letters of Junius or Voltaire's Candide, or scurrilous as in pasquinades. In the tradition of anonymous British political criticism, the Federalist Papers were anonymously authored."

Доктор спасибо Ральф для вашего объяснения анонимного слова. Я, кажется, широко missused здесь на Сан-O, ошеломляют. Я - российский студент по обмену, который очень борется с английским языком.

Therefore may lack truth, Anonymous.

Listen to what the Russian says, he knows what he is talking about.

Anonymous said...

Yes.

I am anonymous.

You, Dr. Ralph are an actual licenced medical doctor whose last name is "Ralph" and that is your actual picture as your avatar, just like Puttlze is his sole legal name and he is actually the small cat pictured.

Sydney is worse since he has taken the name of a fictional character, even less than one who is real, but anonymous in name only.

Dingo is also, of course, his legal name given him by his parents, bless their hearts, naming him after a wild dog.

Wednesday is a cartoon character! Wow, that's real and of substance.

Did I leave anyone out? No, no one of substance, especially someone using a cartoon character as an avatar and stealing the copyrighted and trademarked name from Griffin.

Oh, but don't let me forget The blog monitor!




. . . except, unlike the rest of you, he is interesting.




. . . and just when you thought you understood me, I mean, since you 'defined' me and all -- and with the help of a dictionary. Much can be learned from books. I have a few myself.

The trouble with being punctual is that no one is there to appreciate it.

Marriage is a three ring circus: engagement ring, wedding ring, and suffering.

Men show their character in nothing more clearly than by what they find laughable.

Thank goodness I found you, Doctor Ralph.

What is it that really bothers you so much about this Anonymous #3?

Beelzeboob said...

You're name is known to me miserable anonymous. Be prepared for lost happiness and lasting pain.

Anonymous, I am looking forward to the day you start your own blog. I have a suggestion for a name... "Blognonymous". When you start it, please provide us with the link. Thanks.

The blog monitor said...

Hello anonymous,

Lesson 1: The blog monitor is not interesting.

Lesson 2: The blog monitor is not interested.

Lesson 3: The blog monitor has no interest.

Beelzeboob is scaring me.

I don't speak Russian!

Dr. Ralph said...

This the best I can do Murphy, as my Russian is not very good. Thank you Doctor Ralph for your explanation of an anonymous word. It is apparently very much missused here on theSano - O. I am the Russian student on an exchange, which very much struggles with English language.

San Clemente (Reuters) - When local health officials came to remove a man from the apartment he has not left in more than two decades they had to don respirators against the stench, newspapers reported Sunday.

The man, named Doctor Ralph, was in his late 50s, weighed about 366 pounds, and had hair seven feet long when officials came to take him to the hospital, San Clemente newspapers reported.

Firefighters and health officials in San Clemente, a city about 50 miles south of Los Angeles, found the apartment's windows sealed with adhesive tape and the shutters jammed shut.

A bout of influenza 26 years ago terrified Doctor Ralph so much that he tried to seal himself off from germs by barricading himself in his home, the papers said.

His plight came to the attention of local authorities after his brother, who leaves tinned food outside his front door, called police to say that upcoming medical treatment would prevent him from carrying on.

"Puttzle" has not seen his brother in 10 years, newspapers reported.

Doctor Ralph's main contact with neighbors has been to shout a single message through his door: "Screw anonymous!"!
