Allahu Abha!

I appreciate what you are doing, Jonah. I appreciate the library. I apreciate this discussion board, and I think you do want to limit the multiplicity of pseudonyms.

I have seen people who use this board, get confused when it seems to them that five Baha'is disagree vehemently with something they say. They are unaccustomed to seeing this in a Baha'i environment, and they wonder if there is something really odd about what they've said, or if something has gone odd here.

Many of these people can not tell that they have been duped by one other poster, duped into believing that three, four or five Baha'is are vehemently disagreeing with them.

I don't think it is nice to trick people into thinking that they've written something which is disagreeable to many, when it really is disagreeable only to one.
