How do we know it's you?

How do we know it's you answering the question and not some pesky impersonator?

You'll notice the words "Fog Creek Software" below my name. This is another one of those Magic Internet things... posts that come from Fog Creek Software employees, like myself, will have this, and posts that come from the entire rest of the world will not.

You know, Joel, why don't you just implement something to stop others posting under your name? I mean, shouldn't it take what? Ten minutes?

" I mean, shouldn't it take what? Ten minutes?"

5 with .NET, but then he'll have to distribute the framework which will take 15 minutes.  Where's that damn linker at?

What if I just post using your name and a guess at your email address?
Especially since If I really did this, I wouldn't want to be identified for who I really am.

But its clear that you're not Joel.  You didn't type arrogantly enough.

I'm sure this won't work, either.
