I was searching on the Internet for "Willard Van Orman Quine" and found this sentence of him:
"No entity without identity"
W.V. Quine

- thought it should be written on top of MD forum (considering our recent discussions about anonymous posters )

Shouldn't it be "No entitlement without identity"?

Ok, let's mae a compromise:
"No entitlement for entities without identities!"
(This way we can include folk with multiple, replacable identities).
