I have recently been participating in a thread concerning anonymity and 
pseudonymity on the Internet.  Somebody was complaining about trying to 
find somebody and they were logged in with an uncorrelatable alias. 
(Fishman = Don Johnson????)  The person was asking for a rule that 
everyone log in with an alias that DIRECTLY correlated them with their 
"real world" (relative term) pseudo.  Yuch!!!!! 

What I was wondering was if any of you law hacks out there new anything 
about the following comment regarding phone books

A professor of communications has brought up the fact that it is illegal 
to use a pseudo in the white pages of the phone book.  Is this the case?

Remember the last time you called her, she forgets
Pray to her, she will remember that
she will remember that
