I suspect the loudest attendees will be crickets.

Is that the how we measure the value of people in society? How loud they are? Aren't you still desperately searching for accountability?

This should be fun - watching you and FakeBo debate personal accountability.

Clearly you don't know what fun is. Get out of your basement from time to time.

Carefree fun at that.

Let me guess, your [insert here] wife, girlfriend, boyfriend (or all 3), employer, customer, neighbor, pastor, et al. might discover the "real" you and you may suffer repercussions as a result. Lots of self shackled folks on this site.

Same weak assumption that you make about many people. My people know me so I wouldn't worry about it and neither should you. Stay safe and best wishes.
