Welcome to a feature where I have imagined a question in order to make a post out of me answering that question.
I have called this style of posts ‘IQ’, which is of course short for ‘Imaginary Questions’.
I once read a blog where this sort of post was called Frequently Unasked Questions, which looks fine at first but then you realise how it reads as an acronym.
However, I have no aversion to using simple initialisations, and I don’t expect anyone intelligent will get IQ confused with anything else.
The IQ’s could be about anything, but more often than not, they’re not.
Anyway, let’s get started.
IQ: I know that bryntin is not your real name, so how come you’ve chosen to write under a pseudonym instead of your real name? Remember, we want more expansive answers now.
Well, I’m glad you have asked that. The answer is that there are compelling arguments both for and against blogging under your own name, and I’ve decided to go with the side of the arguments that are against it.
IQ: So can you tell us why?
Thank you for your question.
