There are some exceptions to the rule, but I agree.
Luckily however, I for one don't fit in this box. My writing style is very easy to recognize, not to mention that I'm very open about myself and other things in general, so I could certainly be stripped off of everything and whoever ends up reading a comment of mine would be like "Yeah this can only be Agent6, this guy is unmistakeable."
The problem with opening one's self is that on a lot of forums I've had experience with, including the one I took care of for a number of years, is that people just don't (want to) care about this, they just want something to talk about, everything else is secondary, they couldn't care less who they're talking with, and thus people are pressured into avoiding this subject altogether because "that's not the focus". I most definitely like hearing and talking about one's interests, passions, and so on to get to know the person better, you can never know what you learn. This can sadly also have negative consequences. People are very quick to judge and once they hear someone's X, Y, and Z they become intolerant and start avoiding the said person because they don't like what they're hearing.
This talk actually reminds me of something we had on the aforementioned forum: Ask zone. People could just create a topic in this section and various members could come by and ask them something about themselves or what else they wanted to. "Ask me anything" was a very suggestive topic name.
