Personally I don’t think the name in the mail header is enough. Transparency works both ways. It should be clear who is posting and who (if any) they represent. I too, have dropped many threads on this list as it simply goes pointless once it heads in a certain direction.

You mean the name in the mail header is not enough? OR Are you saying that people should add a signature to their mail. Well I think this is an open list and one could chose to contribute anonymously or otherwise so long as the content is not unethical and not out of scope.

Agree with Jay.
And perhaps a good first step might be to require posters to clearly disclose their identity and affiliation.
