I am not aware of any reason why someone has to post his or her call on this or
any reflector, many do as a courtesy and because they like too see their call
letters flash by, sort of a need for narcism. On the other hand you will note
that many do not. The reflector is like any other site for dissemination of
information, you will agree that Part 97. of the rules governing amateur
communications do not encompass any segment of the news groups or assorted
reflectors. If a person desires anonymity and privacy is an issue than that is
their choice which is guaranteed under the US constitution for them to do so.
What ever this persons reason for not posting a call sign should really be NO
concern of yours or for that anyone else.
