An anonymous rant against anonymity

October 1st, 2009 · 114 comments

Our anonymous submitter in Dallas says this randomly showed up one day on the bulletin board at work with no further explanation, leaving everyone to puzzle over the notewriter’s intended motive. (To hurt? To edify? It boggles the mind!)

    So, uh, who is the person who left the note?

      One of Sandra’s coworkers probably.
      I’d leave it anonymous too.
      Don’t mess with Sandra.

      It sounds like some fools epihany. They have only just realised the psychological workings of a passive aggressive note and feel an evangelical need to share their enlightenment with the world. Is it any suprise that it was found in Texas? This note itself deserves a big, red and inky ;

      “Thank you captain f@cking obvious! – sincerely anonymous.”

      Guys, did anyone else notice that the note-writer didn’t sign the note? Making it an anonymous note? Because I totally noticed that.

    I think what must have happened is the note writer actually did sign the note, but then the anonymous submitter REALLY wanted to submit a note to PAN, so (s)he cut off the rest of the note and took a picture.

    Except it was signed:

      chrys,
      it looks like a whole sheet to me; just looks like they printed it sideways, portrait or whatever the heck it’s called.

    • #4.3   oi

      No it’s not. If you look at the sheet, ratio of longer to shorter size is not 11/8.5. sheet in question is cut and ratio is more like 1.
      it’s called landscape btw.
      Portrait is vertical orientation of 8.5×11 sheet that is, longer side is vertical or it stands on it’s shorter side.
      Landscape is horizontal orientation of 8.5×11 sheet that is,shorter side is vertical or it stands on it’s longer side.

      Look closely at the very bottom and you can see little marks on the edge of the sheet [takes off glasses] that show the paper was folded.

      YEEEEAAAAAAHHHHH

      Also the bottom is not straight.

      Thanks for the clarification, edification and impartation of grace.

      and, yes, I know that’s not a real word. ;)

      ps
      i just figured the paper wasn’t plastered to the wall, so, it is a bit bent, which would make it look all crooked.
      but, ok, I’ll defer to y’all.

      JJ,

      The “application” there might not be merely a one-act play.

      The introductory and the climactic scenes might need to be performed on different areas of the overall stage.

      You wouldn’t want a thespian to start a play-long soliloquy with a bad taste in her mouth, wouldja?

    I can share the writer’s sentiment, while sneering at the hypocrisy used to convey it. I won’t publish anonymous comments on my blog, mostly because I’ve found that cowards hide beyond anonymity to pour out venom and filth I don’t care to deal with. If someone isn’t willing to own their remarks, I figure that means even that person realizes what they’re saying is worthless.

      I’m a bit confused, though.
      1-I kinda thought we were encouraged to be smartasses here.
      2-do blog owners have super-powers I’m unaware of? I mean, am I about to get a crap load of porn spam sent to me? or should i install a better security system in my house? or maybe a circle of salt around my bed?

      Get a ton of salt+ pick up a few Kg’s of every known type of kryptonite.
      You can’t be too safe!

      If it all turns to @#^(*&^&*, get a scuba tank and head down to the bottom Of Barton Creek Pool and pray…pray hard and often!

      If it’s safe or if your air is running out…you’ll know…it’ll be a sign.

      And if you get a crap load of porn spam…well, make yourself some lemonade (or peach and vanilla ice tea) and enjoy it until the boyfriend question gets resolved.

    Oh god someone please someone rewrite this note, its lack of internal cohesion is killing me. That kind of grammatical inconsistancy haunts me, even though I can’t fully explain what is wrong with it.

    Its in a plural voice, then singular. Its passive, its first person, its just all over the place.

      If I’m unwilling to use my name it’s because you are sober enough to remember it.

    Whoever wrote the note we see was busted, outed, and crushed by the original Anonymous’ note.

    We’ll never know what it accused the perp of.

    We just know that it was perceived as harsh, un-edifying, and hurtful, and had a low coefficient of imparted grace to boot.

    Those are the chief characteristics of a note that accurately calls out a co-worker who should have fucking known better.

    Well, nimrod, when you get caught in the bathroom trying to flush the remains of a chef’s salad (heavy on the leftover cheese and lettuce, you unrepentant carnivore….but that’s another post) after St. Sandra asked you oh-so-nicely not to play Russian Roulette with the sewer pipes, well, it’s supposed to hurt like hell, because that’s apparently what it’s going to take to get through your thick, vacuum-packing skull.

    So, nice try, you whinging small-hearted little shit-weasel…get a grip, take a deep breath, make a resolution never to order that salad again from Marie Callender’s , and try your best to sneak $50 into the petty cash fund over in Suzy’s desk without being noticed while everybody else is in the break room complaining about having to walk up two flights to use the toilets on the fourth floor…oh, and if you get noticed and quizzed…be sure to have an edifying and graceful excuse to impart. M’kay ?

    With the lights out it’s less dangerous
    Here we are now, entertain us
    I feel stupid and contagious

    Yeeeeaaaahhhh!

    Where is this place? Are those green things in the corner supposed to be palm leaves?

      Seems like some kind of leaf and definitely has that elementary school bulletin/projects board feel to it, based on what looks like a newspaper clipping to the right, one or more tones of blue paper below, and green paper immediately above it.

      Maybe someone caught SMD sneaking one of those sweet carrots at lunchtime and forgot to ask for extra credit points for the report ??

    So, why did the author of said note choose to remain anonymous, given he/she was so highly critical of anonymity?

    Hey…did anyone else notice how ironic it is that the writer of this note against anonymity chose to remain anonymous?

    What’s that? All of you did? Well, damn. I guess I’m not so special after all.

    Anonymity is the province of fools, and cowards. It all depends on who hears and sees the things you do and say, whether you’ll be known as a genius or an idiot. I speak from the point of view of one who spouts golden wisdom one moment and vomits forth idiotic bile the next. Yet, I refuse to do either anonymously. I can laugh at my own idiotic moments, can you laugh at yours? If you are laughing at me at least I know you were listening, or watching. If you’re unwilling to use your name you’re afraid of being seen as a fool, so that makes the poster of said note both a fool and a coward. Everyone who has pondered the aforementioned note, I hope you realize it was done in jest. And, it’s an old one. I once saw it on a placque in a lawyers office, way back in 1978.
