Legit Question: Why do you post with an alt?

Just curious to see why there are people out there who post on here with a forum alt, as I genuinely don't know why you would want to hide who you are.

Does your alliance or corp not let you post on these forums? If so why are you with them?

Is it because you fear retribution (lol) for your opinions? Why do you think everyone dislikes your opinions?

Is it because you're a massive troll? If so, why are you Snot Shot/a GRRRR Goon?

This is a legit question, and definitely not a troll post or a rant.

While this is not my oldest Avatar, it has my real 1st name, so I use this alt for that reason. But to be fair, this avatar plays the game so I do not really consider it a forum alt, none of my other avatars post, this one would not either but 2 months ago my boss said no more games on the work pc's. These forums are getting as bad wows, so they are good for laughs.

I'm a nerd, you can check my stats!! Skilling Int/Mem at 45 sp per minute is how I mack!     I'm like a lapdog, all bark no bite.

Sad to say but this is my main. Also even if I get other accounts latter I wont hide behind a Alt.

Play EvE how you want to play it and do not let others dictate how you play. Evolve your playstyle to protect yourself from others! Even in "PVE", "PVP" is there, lurking in the shadows.

I've wondered how people know someone is posting with an alt.

People fear retaliation..

I, on the other hand, don't give 2 f*cks left of Wednesday and always post with my main...

I have 2 characters and they are both alts. This one is for ratting and scanning, my other is for PvP and ganking.

My thread is better though, because it didn't start with "I am Spartacus" quotes.

Simply because not so smart people could mistake my opinion with the opinion of my corp and / or alliance.

Don't be scared, because being afk is not a crime.

I post on an alt because my main has infiltrated a null corp. I have worked hard to move up through the ranks. I got tired of just reading the forums and wanted to participate. I didint start my alt for a long time until I was well secure in this corp. I would be kicked if they seen what I posted and how I felt. I want to be able to do as much damage as possible when I strike.

Alt posting still isint as easy as you may think. I have to make sure I dont use phrases or terms I use in game.

So for me its the meta game. That why I chime in when I see idiots saying sheet like cowards or dont have the balls etc... I had the balls the infiltrate and I will have the balls to deliver what I hope is a crippling strike when the time is right.
