Please Use Real Name
I have finally found the right place to change the registration verbiage. The changes I have made are below.

Even though almost all of the activity has stopped as people moved their interest to other venues such as FaceBook, we have maintained the board because it is potentially an important way for people to share ideas via something with higher latency than the quickly vanishing chatter of FaceBook. Our plan has been to allow time for the new book, Your Immortal Self, to reach a few people to see if anyone would turn to the Idea Exchange to ask questions.  That is where we are now.

(Thanks to Michael Tymn, I have received the first review! It is on the Amazon page for the book.)

Real Names
Some of you know that I tried for years to have a positive influence for paranormal subjects on Wikipedia. That experience taught me how using a screen name is a lot like hiding behind a mask. If you have read The Lord of the Flies, then you will know it is a lot like that.

In a very real sense, for discussions about concepts and new ideas, what a person says from behind a pseudonym has no real meaning. Also, I have submitted myself to way too much abuse at the hands of masked editors to wish to repeat that here. So please consider making sure your real name is on your profile before deciding to participate here.
