I don't want to reveal my real User nameEdit

I am a regular user who can't log in from where I am. I don't want to reveal my real User name because I don't want my location checked based on the anon IP I'm using. 99.166.95.142 (talk) 17:01, 23 September 2009 (UTC)

  Question: I know this is going to fall into the category of “questions whose answers are intuitively obvious”, but I thought that one could log in from anywhere in the world, so why would one ever have to edit anonymously? Plus, there is now a disconnect between your two sets of edits making your Wikipedia world harder for you to keep track of. — Spike (talk) 17:49, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
I can, physically, log in, but I don't want to log in at the location where I'm currently editing. 99.166.95.142 (talk) 18:57, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
Another silly question, and please forgive me, but is this allowed? The reason I ask is that just the other day I was advising another editor that, once he has a Wikipedia account for making logged-in edits, he runs the risk of being accused of sock puppetting if he makes any not logged-in, anonymous edits. If, however, what you are saying is true/correct, then I incorrectly advised this fellow and need to rectify that. Thanks! — Spike (talk) 19:02, 23 September 2009 (UTC)
