He says that he normally doesn’t copy and paste without noting that it’s a quotation or providing attribution (this is “perhaps the only one” where he didn’t do so), and invites me to check out the rest of his board to verify. I haven’t done so, but I’m willing to take him at his word.
He also writes:
And thanks for using your real name. That is your real name, right, or are you a big MacGyver fan? http://members.aol.com/immurdoc/murdoc.htm Would you like to tell us your full name and who you are? I noticed no biographical information on your web page. Maybe I just missed it. Easy to do, a lot of content there.
Standing up for what you believe while using your real identity adds weight to your arguments, don?t you think? You would be among the first conservatives ever to do so on this board.
If I were an Apache pilot and willing to post my name and background, perhaps it might add some weight to my arguments. But as I’ve noted before, I’ll remain “Murdoc” for the time being. My pseudonym doesn’t change what’s on the video, and I’ll let my writing on my web site speak for itself.
This may change in the near future, as this site has grown considerably since I started it as a lark using my old AOL and MSN screenname and a bastardized spelling of my junior high nickname. (However, there is a sort of “MacGuyver” connection, and those that know me probably find it funny. Those that don’t know me probably find it much less so.) As my readership continues to grow, I will give more thought to the issue of my identity, though I don’t really see what difference it will make at this point.
(Not that semi-clever people can’t find it out if they really want to, anyway.)
I always use “Murdoc” online, whether on my site or others, and I feel that I have a certain identity even without divulging the name on my birth certificate. And what if I “came out” but gave you a false name? What difference would it make?
Watch the video. Read the debates. Think about it and form your own opinions.
And tell me if you would like to know my real name.
UPDATE: If you’re going to link, please link to this page and not directly to the video. Thanks.
