Somebody not using their real name on usenet and using a pseudonym like 
"Ifman1" instead. I call these people "anonymous cowards" :-)^

In some cases it's their intention to use these pseudonyms, in some 
cases they just haven't set up their mail client properly. In any case, 
I give them a nudge this way.

PS: I took the term from Slashdot, but it applies to usenet very well.
