Your Questions About Anonymous Mask

Mandy asks…

Why do people feel the desire to wear a mask that does not nearly show who they are behind it?

I already know some reasons, such as fear of others’ reactions to who they truly are, but I just want to know other reasons, and personal experiences as well, if you are willing.

Does that mask allow you to act freely and completley opposite of who you are? Or, in other words, do you feel the need to be anonymous to do what goes against your nature?
For those that constantly fake their true identity for whatever reasons, have you lost who you are in the process?

barry0912 answers:

Intricate questioning… I really agree that most people fear others’ rejection to who they really are. This is the bulk percentage. I also agree that a mask allows one to act freely, but only as they truly are. If it is a physical mask such as that worn in plays or this avatar, it might allows some to truly express themselves. But if we’re talking about figurative masks, such as displays of a certain personality or use of heavy makeup or embelliment with lifestyle, clothes, etc, then I believe they are displays of insecurity. They are used to cover up deep insecurities and the point is to portray someone who is opposite in nature.

For people who are stage-shy but have talent, their best act could happen with a mask on, or their hair wildly disguising their upfront image. That is because these people are introverted and rich with thoughts, ideas, and emotions and have more to show that stems from inside, leaving them all the more feeling vulnerable. A mask then allows the freedom to be oneself and feel exposed without really exposing the identity that would mean more profound feelings of vulnerability for such sensitive persons. A person of this nature would be prone to wear thick, “physical” masks such as a thoughtful gaze that fronts a deep inner life.

If you’re always in the pack you need only be superficial to belong and if that is your habit then wearing a mask really would hold less meaning. A person of this nature would be more prone then to wear more superficial masks, such as an affect or light disposition that fronts a more superficial inner life.

How do you know people fake their identity? What if it’s real?Many avatars are fragments of a complex inner life, aren’t they? You are “tennis guy”, but aren’t you also a “math champ” or “musician” or “student” or “millionaire” or “American Idol tryout”? (Had to scratch out the “husband” after I read your profile!LOL) We never know many aspects of of a person, however multifaceted behind an avatar at any given moment. It comes down to people’s multiple interests, I guess.

Paul asks…

How can i make an anonymous costume?

I’m trying to make the infamous green body anonymous costume (not the guy fawkes one). I have a good idea on how to make the mask, but how can I make skin tight gloves that go up my arms?

tl;dr: how do I make super long, green skin tight gloves?

barry0912 answers:

Congratulations on your costume idea, it’s quite original! 🙂
for the gloves, I can’t give you any advice if you want to make them yourself, but if you are going to buy them, then I can help you. You have to find gloves that are something like 26-27 inches long (it’s possible that instead of a measure in inches you find the mentions “16B” or “18B”, it stands for the length of the gloves in “buttons”; I would then suggest you to look for 18B gloves. For the gloves to fit very tight, there need to be at least 15-20% spandex in the fabric. From my experience it’s not easy to find such gloves; I would advise you to look for them in more specialised shops like bridal shops or shops that sells formal dresses.

Good luck on your search!!!

Your Questions About Title Loans

Lisa asks…

how to get out of title loans?

I took out a title loan for 2000 dollars 2yrs ago and have now paid back over 3000 dollars and the loan company is saying the money went to the principal and i still owe 2000 dollars. how do i get out of this?

barry0912 answers:

Tony:

The only way “out” of a loan is to satisfy the terms and conditions that you agreed to. When you took out the loan, you signed a promissory note – that’s where you’ll find all of the details of the agreement. If you signed it, you’re responsible for everything in there. If the loan contains unconscionable terms, you might have some recourse, but even then, you’d have to demonstrate that you were either incapable of understanding the terms that you agreed to, or that you had no choice but to accept the agreement.

The repayment schedule on your loan is determined by your interest rate, by the length of time that you have to repay, and by the amount of your monthly payment. If your interest rate is high, the repayment period is long, and your monthly payment is small, it could well be possible that you still owe pretty much everything that you borrowed.

The trick to repaying a loan quickly is to pay more than the minimum payment every month – that applies to credit cards, mortgages and any other type of borrowed funds.

I’m guessing that you misunderstood one thing that the lender told you – it’s unlikely that your payments went to principal, because if they had, you’d be in good shape. I think the payments that you’ve made have all gone towards some outrageous interest charge.

Just as an example, if you borrowed $2000 at 24% and made payments of only $41 a month, you’d wind up repaying almost $7700 and it would take you more than 12 years to repay the loan.

Get out the promissory note and check your interest rate and your payment term and your payment amount, and pay as much as you can. If possible, try to refinance this debt with a lower interest rate loan.

Good luck.

John asks…

Any one ever used Title Loans?

Has anyone ever used TURBO TITLE LOANS? It says they need a car title and a key. If it is online How do they get my car title and key? Also would they no if my car was broken? How?

barry0912 answers:

A car has to be worth at least $500 on the open market to qualify for title loans. A Salvage title is allowed. Customers will be asked about the current condition of the vehicle. The car needs to be running and in drivable condition, however, it can be in the shop in some cases. Previous clients have used title loans to pay a mechanics’ bill. This way, they get their repairs even when the repair shop won’t finance the bill.

Your Questions About Anonymous Email

Sharon asks…

If you send someone an anonymous email, can that person find out who sent it?

I know that they can probably find my IP address but once they have that, can they find out the identity of the person who sent the anonymous email.

Also, please not that when I set up my Yahoo! account, the personal info I put in was also made up, to keep me anonymous.

Thanks.

barry0912 answers:

It is possible to find out an IP address but I doubt if they can find out who sent it by this. It takes special software and usually only internet providers or law enforcement can get a home address from an IP address. The internet provider will not release this information to just anyone.

The link below shows the way to get an IP address:

Your Questions About Title Ix

Lizzie asks…

Does Title IX protect a college football player right of sexual identity?

I think I’m gay. I intend to be a D1 QB but I will NOT put up with any harassment.

barry0912 answers:

No, it only allows for the equal opportunity to participate in educational programs regardless of federally protected classes. Neither Sexual Preference nor Sexual/Gender Identity are protected classes under federal law. Some states protect one or the other, but not many. However, many schools have non-discrimination policies that cover those classes.

John asks…

What are peoples opinions on Title IX and how its influenced womens sports today?

barry0912 answers:

Title IX has been miss used.
It was supposed to give women’s sports an equal opportunity.
I take that to mean the same number of scholar athletes, but many interpret that to mean the same amount of money is spent on women and men.
What has happened is many schools have dropped men’s sports while adding women’s sports such as crew and equestrian.
Some want football canceled even though that is normally the one sport that makes money and funds the rest of the athletic program.
There are schools that have dropped men’s sports even though those sports were never a burden to the school, i.e. Golf which was completely funded by private donations was dropped so the 6 men lost their scholarships at no savings to the school.
I believe women should have an equal opportunity to sports, but not to the extent that men must suffer, especially since these people did not participate in past discrimination.

Linda asks…

Will online activity (of commentary websites like blogs, twitter, yahoo answers) always remain anonymous?

If you sign up for one of these sites anonymously, the only thing that can really be traced to you is your IP address (and possibly MAC address – though not sure). My question is – would there ever be a future scenario, for whatever the reason may be, in which IP addresses begun to be linked to certain people’s names – so that in a way, others could know what online activities you’ve been involved with?

Or, would this scenario be a breach of the right to privacy – and this information would always remain anonymous forever?
In other words, can ISP companies reveal the names of individuals linked with certain IP addresses? Or, is this against the privacy law?
What I meant in particular was, if a person is too opinionated in their online activities – can ISP’s oust people like that?

barry0912 answers:

It’s already not anonymous. ISPs do hand over customer based on IP address. E.g. Police find man trying to cyber sex a child, they go to his ISP, ask them who used this IP at this time, they give info.

Your Questions About Anonymous

Susan asks…

What should I do? An anonymous letter was sent to my organization maliciously destroying my integrity?

Recently, my organization head received an anonymous letter saying I did extortion and accepted bribe money for the past two years? The writer is unknown, no address, and it mentions no specific victim of extortion. It contains no lead to a fact of the complain. Honestly, I did not do any such unethical acts!. My supervisor and boss said they will review the over a thousand cases of my work for the past two years, and I am not afraid. What will I do? Who could have done this to me?

barry0912 answers:

You may never know who sent the letter. While its normal to wonder, it can also drive you crazy.

The most important thing in this situation is to remain calm, keep your cool, smile, cooperate and go about your work. Do not allow the inquiry to interfere with your continuing to do a good job.

Second, your organization should contain any possible damage to your reputation. If they feel the need to look into the letter, then fine. Not knowing all the facts, its hard to say if they are acting correctly in even responding this way. They should, however, act in a manner that respects your reputation. The inquiry should be limited to what’s necessary to produce results, and the people involved should be limited only to those that can offer necessary and relevant information and / or have an absolute need to know in order to complete the inquiry. That’s normally legal, HR, your supervisor(s) and other employees that have direct and personal knowledge of important facts. They should do what’s necessary to finish the inquiry as soon as reasonably possible so everyone can put the incident behind the organization.

The specific rules on these matters differ by country and state. Also, the allegations can be criminal, which is fairly serious. I would consider consulting with an employment lawyer in your area. I would avoid involving counsel in the discussions with your employer, and I might even hesitate to make public the fact you are consulting with counsel. That tends to put the discussion on an adversarial footing, some people will react negatively (assume you have something to hide), and it may appear as if your concerned and not cooperating. Having said that, getting some advice in the background is always a good thing … And you can work with your counsel on when, or if, its ever reasonable to involve him / her in the matter.

Good Luck.

Chris asks…

How do I become truly anonymous on the internet?

I already use tor what else can I do because I heard of the government getting passed tor’s security. Is there a computer I can by that is without IP or something. I currently have a mac book are there settings I should turn off or on. How do I become truly anonymous on the internet?

barry0912 answers:

If you don’t have an IP address then it is physically impossible for you to be on the internet. End of story.

The best option would be to use Tor AND pay for a professional VPN that DOES NOT keep any IP records period (some do even though they say they protect identity). Additionally use a browser which randomizes the user agent per every webpage, does not keep cookies, and does not support java.

True anonymity is impossible without getting into a main internet line without the use of an ISP.
