Actually, would it really matter? For many purposes, it is enough to
know that the person you call Brent is the same person that is claiming
to be the person you know as Brent in emails to this list.
The kinds of situations where this distinction might be important are
communities where both reputation and anonymity are paramount. Two
examples I can think of are human rights organizing and filesharing
release groups (without implying moral similarity).
