    Whether Katrice's profile is fake or not I have found her contribution in the GRC community quite valuable.

    There is an ever-occurring debate about anonymity in SCN with no simple answer. But there also needs to be recognition of people with alternative names. Hey, my profile could be considered fake if you compared my name to User Id.

    Regards

    Colleen

    • Often fake accounts are being used for cheating or trolling, but some "real people" choose to not reveal their identity for various reasons (e.g. employer doesn't like it that much time is spent on SCN...), so you have to look at the contributions coming from the accounts.
