Your Secret Is Safe With Me by The Baroness

“Why do I do this?…… well……. Because its HELLA fun!” – Old Super Hero

No truer words have ever been spoken. Seriously, we all have our reasons for being here and doing what we do. We all have our reasons for dressing up in costumes and being something else. Underneath all those “reasons” the fact remains that we all do this because it’s FUN! Well, it’s supposed to be. There are certain rules that we all have to follow to allow this community to function. Really it’s not much more than common courtesy and respect.

The biggest breach of that respect recently has been the outing of people’s real life identities. There is a reason we all separate this from our civilian lives. We work hard to maintain our anonymity. No one has the right to breach that line. No one has the right to attack you or go after people that are close to you. The people perpetrating this heinous misconduct should be widely ousted from the community. It doesn’t matter what side of the fence you fall on… be it…. “good” or “evil”.

With the influx of new people constantly coming into this community we have to show a united front. We have to make it clear that this kind of disrespect to any member of the community will not be tolerated. None of us can afford to lose our job; none of us want our family members to be threatened or hurt. Since when did it become ok to shirk human decency just because you put on a mask?

  1. Thank you for voicing this Baroness. You remind us that the best RLSVs are the ones we respect and can converse with because of their wisdom and standards. You’re certainly at the top of that well-respected list.

  2. I think that having a secret identity that stays secret is a superpower. No matter how much effort you put into keeping hidden, eventually it WILL come out.

  3. It was the capes that made my identity public and as a result, Malvado only keeps secrets pertaining to Villains. And Geist, being respected by you is meaningless, especially with your little tirade of threats agaist me back when I sunk Zetaman.

    Either way, I still have great admiration for Baroness and the standards she shares with her peers. That, of course, doesn’t mean I have to abide by such standards myself. 🙂
