FYI - Command Line Programs for the Blind

I'd like to know why identities are not revealed, I have my guesses, privacy, security, avoiding harvesting by  bots and being suddenly swarmed with spam just for posting on a list...but it'd be good to know the reason why from the horse's mouth, so to speak.

That and I'd also like to fix this list. There's nothing really wrong with this list and certainly no need to go fork off a whole new list however though, not if the list maintainer can sort things out, to have a hwole new list over one issue seems, well, a little petty to me however
