I have been looking around some on the web and came across the site:
As someone who did my own process on dealing with anonymity on the web (article), I'm still wondering how and where deal with my anonymity.

I am not on the web to "hide out" - I am wholly visible in "face" AA. Lots of folks know me well (first name, last name, where I live, phone number, email address, etc.) but "branding" my AA anonymity by the above link seems to me to sort of mean that I get to be "special" in AA online.

And, that, in turn, seems to defeat some of the whole point of the anonymity that I have as the spiritual foundation of my recovery.


  1. It is a very very fine line we walk.

  2. A new perspective for me--I post "Willing to be Anonymous for reasons I have now forgotten. But it does remind me from time to time, to be aware, and be careful of my own writing online.

    And if anything has reminded me of infractions I've made--your post has.

    Thank you. Sincerely!
    Steve E.
