“Having said the above however, on the request that people identify themselves as FGA/SGA/outsider, I would recommend against it. It is somewhat against the anonymity rules we have set up. Although helpful, it is not entirely necessary for people to know "who" they are talking to, and in fact can often distract from the subject at hand, or create unintentional patronization. People post what they post and should stand on their own merit and be treated on "equal footing" so to speak.”
I could’t agree more with you on that.
When responding to input, I’d say taking information at face value is imperative. There is no good reason not to do so.
Giving ourselves wiggleroom to read between the lines and then responding to that will most of the time then merely be a response to our own prejudice and lively imagination.
However, it puzzles me that you should make such a point because I don’t have entirely unambiguous experience in this field… namely also from coordinators. The explanation to this is probably that there may be a few different coordinators who see differently on these things…(?)
