I've thought long and hard about WP:REALNAME. I think that openness about identity brings great rewards for a project, not least in terms of reducing wiki-vandals, but how we go about the business of WP with each other (Wikiquette). However, as I consider Wikipedia a voluntary pastime, I have to separate it from my paid and voluntary jobs, which include professionally-regulated work. Therefore, my real identity is private and will remain so for now. For the purposes of WP discussions, male pronouns are appropriate.
