So I guess you disagree with H. P. Blavatsky in the below?
PARTING WORDS FROM MADAME BLAVATSKY (1878)
"It is universally known that this most important object is to antagonize Christianity and especially Jesuitism. One of our most esteemed and valued members-once an ardent Spiritualist, but who must for the present be nameless-has but recently fallen a victim to the snares of this hateful body. The nefarious designs of Jesuitism are plotted in secret and carried out through secret agencies. What more reasonable and lawful, therefore, than that those who wish to fight it should keep their own secret, likewise, as to their agencies and plans? We have among us persons in high positions-political, military, financial and social-who regard Christianity as the greatest evil to humanity and are willing to help pull it down. But for them to be able to do much and well, they must do it anonymously. The church-"Triple-headed Snake," as a well-known writer calls it-can no longer burn its enemies, but it can blast their social influence; can no longer roast their bodies, but can ruin their fortunes. We have no right to give our enemy, the church, the names of our "Fellows" who are not ripe for martyrdom, and so we keep them secret. If we have an agent to send to India, or to Japan, or China, or any other heathen country, to do something or confer with somebody in connection with the Society's general plans against missionaries, it would be foolish, nay, criminal, to expose our agent to imprisonment under some malicious pretext, if not death, and even the latter is possible in the faraway East, and our scheme is liable to miscarry by announcing it to the dishonorable company of Jesus."
A few words of my own, which you might find helpful:
I suggest, that we simply relate to the fact, that when a person doesn't reveal his or her identity or hides it, then it is better to deal with the situation as it is - than to demand that they reveal their identity. Because demanding such a thing might hurt the surroundings and even our theosophical cause. Real theosophists might have reasons to hid their identities. And not seldom we will se persons hide, because they are afraid. Why scare people by demanding that they should reveal who they are? - Of course they aught not to tell people that they are someone else and pretend. (Ore even pretend that they are heretics. - smile.)
A tree is always known on its fruits. Staying at a forum or just e-mailing etc. etc. will soon reveal to you who you are dealing with.
If in need I am sure Master, HPB or someone else will let you in on who you are involved with. Sure they are here - and watching this forum as well, - and the members Karmic patterns.

Subject: Theos-World New Trend in answering to the Public
By now anyone who has been watching TV, reading newspapers, browsing
Internet could not have missed the Tigerâs story which started with
his SUV crashing into the fire hydrant and the tree near his house at
2.00 am. No one except Tiger was injured in the accident.
One aspect to be noticed is that the only feedback the public has got
from him is a statement on Tigerâs website. This technique is not new
especially to those in theosophical circles. It permits one-way
statement and avoids facing the newsmen and others on a personal
interactive question and answer session where more details may have to
be disclosed and would not look pretty on the individuals concerned.
Theosophists have improved on the technique either by using assumed
names to hide identity or use others to do it, trying to keep their
public images clean.
Does such techniques work? They do not. Because it only keeps the
issues alive and speculations continue and information start trickling
out and continue to the hurt the public perception of individuals
concerned even though they may not realize it.
In the days of old, people faced issues directly and answered them.
Now we are in Kali Yuga and the rules have changed, and changed
Let us keep tuned. We have Internet to keep us informed and it is a
medium no one is able to control with money or power.
