Where’s your face?

Mail BoxDear Doctor Sam,

Why don’t you show your face on your website. What’s up with the pictures of the back of your head?

Sincerely,

Curious

Well Curious, that’s a great question.

Other than the obvious answer which is that my face ain’t all that pretty, it’s all about preserving the thin veil of anonymity.

I know it isn’t much of a veil and that any truly determined person would have very little difficulty discovering my identity, but it’s something at least.

Let’s face it, there are a lot of nutjobs out there who might not like some opinion I write or whatever and I really don’t want some potential stalker or axe-murderer to know what I look like.

I suppose it could be argued that an axe-murderer would likely sneak up behind me in order to strike his blow and that I therefore am showing him exactly what to look for by showing the back of my head, but I guess that’s just a chance I’ll have to take.

Anyway, there’s no super secret here. Maybe someday I’ll reveal my full name and face, but for now, I prefer to maintain a little bit of privacy.

Hope that satisfies your curiosity!

Cheers,

…Sam
