Ahh the joys of "freedom of speech". The ability to espouse dissenting
opinions, especially anonymously is the cornerstone of free speech.
Assuming you're not saying anything libel ridden, or blatently dangerous -
such as shouting fire in a crowded theater, you absolutely have the right
to say things and publish things anonymously - especially as it regards
political views. (at least here in the US)
Having said that, you'll note that I did not publish my thoughts
anonymously on /., You can find them under my moniker, "Woodie" - and I
even signed my own name.
