Family members or friends, I often wonder if some of the people that post here are people that I know, under names I wouldn't recognize. It's easy to be anonymous on a board.
For some part, people give away their geographical location in the course of talking about things that affect them locally, but so far I don't think I've come across any familiar faces.
Imagine finding that someone you know, who pretty much keeps a conservative posture in person, giving a deeper perspective on their personal ideologies than what you're used to dealing with on a personal basis...
Hey Cajun, what did I tell you about speaking publically about my family?
Watch your back.
