Apparently some things do need to be spelled out.

There's something I practice in this journal. It's called "pseudonymity". It's the reason why I use nicknames for my partner and my kids, and why I refer to myself as [personal profile] nanila in posts and in comments. It's the reason why I don't [usually] make public posts linking to items containing my real name.

I know it's not difficult to make a few leaps from the information I provide here to my real identity, but if you are on my Access/Friends list on DW/LJ, it's because I hope there is a tacit understanding that you will respect this preference and not mention my real name, or my partner's real name, or my child(ren)'s real name(s), in publicly accessible entries. I can forgive the occasional slip-up, but if ever this starts to look malicious to me, I reserve the right to remove access.

I will always err on the side of caution with respect to others' pseudonymity as well.
