“There may be some here who are not familiar with our Tradition of personal anonymity at the Public level:

“‘ Our public relations policy is based on attraction rather than promotion; we need always maintain personal anonymity at the level of press, radio, [TV,] and films.’

“ Thus we respectfully ask that no A.A. speaker – or, indeed, any A.A. member – be identified by full name in published or broadcast reports of our meetings, including reports on new media technologies such as the Internet.

“ The assurance of anonymity is essential in our effort to help other problem drinks who may wish to share our recovery program with us. An our Tradition of anonymity reminds us that A.A. principles come before personalities.”

Some areas of the Online Alano Club require a user name and password to enter. That practice ensures that search engines will not index those pages. In other areas, such as the public discussion forums, we encourage you not to post your full name or a photo. Ultimately, anonymity is an individual responsibility, for our own spiritual growth and out of respect for the anonymity of others, especially the newcomer.
