Not all anonymous messages are of
Parsons Brinckerhoff variety, some provide tip offs and others polite
observations. Most give no clue as to why the messages should be anonymous but
occasionally it is all too obvious.
I used to try to spot serial anonymous senders but gave up after I mistakenly convinced myself that a series of messages were all from the same source and drew some seriously wrong conclusions as a result. Recently I have not attempted to be that ‘clever’ and I file them all together with no attempt to segregate them into sources. You can’t win. I now I find I have dismissed as a ‘nobody’ someone I should probably have identified as a ’somebody’, but it never occurred to me. Maybe the serial anonymous senders should allocate themselves a four digit PIN to save my blushes.
