The following is an exchange that occurred in the comments to this question. The nature of the discussion is somewhat heated, and has, in my opinion, absolutely no bearing on the question to which these comments are appended. I've copied that discussion here (and removed their antecedents), and interested parties should continue the discussion on Meta, where this type of discussions belong.
@T.. You should observe that the vast majority of active users (say from the first page of the user listing) is quite comfortable disclosing their real name, affiliation, etc. They too are involved in closing threads and they don't seem to be at all worried about anonymity. This anonymisation issue just doesn't seem to be as high on other users' agenda, as it is on yours. I think that discussing it in comments to a closed off-topic "maths or something like that" question is - ironically - off-topic and should be done on meta. – Alex Bartel
@Alex: save your (by now familiar) personal attacks for the meta. The anonymization proposal was part of a highly upvoted posting on the meta, and you can easily find it there if you wish to dispute the matter or assess what is popular or not. It is simply false that the vast majority of users (or the same weighted by post count) are using their real names, though you are of course free to compile statistics. See you on the meta where, as you say, this is more on topic. – T..
@T.. I don't see any personal attacks in my comment. I was pointing out a fact, namely that out of 24 users (at the point of writing) who have the power to cast votes to close questions, only 5 seem to care about anonymity and none of them is a moderator. To point out that meta discussions are off-topic in the comment thread to a closed question on the main site is not a personal attack either. Anyway, I apologise if you felt personally attacked and shall think twice before criticising your actions (I have not criticised your person) in the future. – Alex Bartel
@Alex: there is obviously a difference between reasons why moderators and regular users might wish to be anonymous (see original discussion here: meta.math.stackexchange.com/questions/1258 ). It is a familiar episode in online forums for non-anonymous users to -- without evidence of a problem -- cast aspersions upon the anonymity of other users, especially those with whom they have past or present disagreements. So is stretching of other users' comments (e.g., suggesting that anonymization is "high on my agenda"). I'll leave open the interpretation that you don't intend an attack. – T..
