I reckon (a little crudely I guess, but y'all know me by now) that 
the point will become obvious when someone has an idea dangerous 
enough to the equilibrium of our cream-puff-and-horror-show society, 
that publishing it anonymously will be a necessity and no longer just 
a demonstration of modesty or dandyism.

still waiting for a little less consensus,
