Why bother posting a profile for Anonymous Anonymous formerly Anonymus?  I just don't understand why someone would do that.  Can someone enlighten me?

Another interesting combination Huffine-6

She had a name, but it turned out to be wrong.

So she was renamed Anonymous Anonymous.(CLN)

But the old LNAB didn't go away, so she was lnabbed as well.  But a typo got in at that point.

Why anonymous? Why not "Unknown"?
Dunno.  But if you delete a name that can't be left blank, the system fills in Anonymous.

Maybe this profile should be recycled..... There doesn't seem to be any useful information to warrant actually having a profile.
