Why we use fake names

Over the past three years, people who contribute to or comment on this blog have received a fair bit of flak over the fact that many of us prefer to use pseudonyms when we post here. We thought it might be useful to take a look back in time, to the heyday of HR’s namesake…

Happy New Year! from all of us at Hoaxtead Research

What happens after we win the war?
