It is hard to uderstand why some people object against using pseudonyms.
In final count, what matter is ideas and not personalities.

I find it a strange idea that Blavatsky "is the role model for
theosophists," but even if this is so let us keep in mind that she did
not shy away from using pen names (e.g., Radda Bai for her writings in
the Russian).

It is well known that Masters routinely used pseudonyms to conceal their
real names and identities.
