I won't name names but I find it a little bit odd when I get emails for quotes or for assistance and, even when asked, some people don't want to tell me their names.
Is it embarrassment or some other reason? I think it is just courtesy to share first names if you're communicating about possible work or help.
In fact, in one of my ads in Gumtree, I say that if people don't tell me their name, I won't help them.
That one is for resume writing.
Your thoughts and opinions on this??
