It all depends on the concept of "Concept of Limited Trust", i.e., to what extent you trust a person. Well, you trust some people to be speaking truth to you, but only because someone is speaking truth can not be a guarantee for anyone to be good too.

Well people have different reasons that they say to hide their identities. Most of them feel that it is "Unsafe" to disclose one' identity. My job is not to eradicate any social notion, so I don't bother much about it, but my only advice is to ask them, what name they give to complete strangers travelling with them in bus/ train/ airplanes??
If you can give your name, business cards to complete strangers there, what inhibits you from doing so here????

But well people have different notions and its' better to leave the people with what they believe in as I am a strong advocate of people's privacy concerns.

As regards my trust, I trust different people known or unknown for different things, so it's hard to generalize. I have never ...more

I will not trust any person, unless he/she tells me his/her identity correctly. That too after sufficient interactions.

Jack - We have been interacting with each other for a few months now - we are friends here - even though we know very little about each other. We are behaving with mutual respect and cordiality. We do not expect any material gains from each other - as social beings we need company, and that is what we are getting from each other on this Forum.

Do we trust each other ? We will know only if either of us makes demands on the others Time/ Money. Then we will need to know more about each other.

No, i wouldnot trust any body without identity
as PERFECT TRUST REQUIRES NO PLEDGES

Living in society calls for trust if we have to get things done. Blind trust unfortunately , cannot be put into our dealings with everyone. we do not want to fail.
