If anyone's interested, insofar as I use throwaways/alts, I do it because

  • I need to protect my identity.

  • I recognise that my opinions don't just come from an individual to some people, but from an individual who is an admin. So especially in order to avoid inhabiting authorititative positions I will do that.

  • I often don't have energy to give as thoughtful and structured a reply as I would like, and would rather an alt did it.

  • Here and there it's helpful to move conversation forward.
