Floyd is a WATB who couldn't mediate his way out of a sore neck and back.

if we had to identify ourselves there's no way we could violate our NDAs and contribute juicy gossip.

Anonymity, or at least partial anonymity helps this forum more than it hurts it. Do not out him.

Floyd's already been (apparently) outed on this forum, well before I ever saw Brenda hint at what his true identity might be.

Over the past year I've seen a couple of posts on this forum, both by low-post-count users, that directly or indirectly ID'd Floyd by name.

Both failed to attract a single reply, so they sank to the bottom of the page and were ultimately deleted (though one can still be found cached on Google - search for hail foron lord chaos).

If two previous posts revealing Floyd's (supposed) identity sank without a ripple, why is it all of a sudden so important now?

I think anonymity is overrated.

Thanks Billy. I'm just not in a serious mood.

Probably should take these threats to out forons as a real problem. Why, none of our secret identities would be safe!

With the clues given here, I was able to figure out who Floyd is. But after I did, I asked myself, "Self, who the fuck is that and why did I waste a half hour putting the pieces together???"

Same with me. I think the only ones who care if Floyd gets outed are Brenda and Floyd, and I'm not certain about Brenda. If she really wanted to out him, she would. Out him again, I mean.

On a related note, last week somebody at work called me Billy.
