  Pseudonym - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A pseudonym (Greek: false name) is a fictitious name used by an individual as an alternative to his or her legal name.
This use of pseudonyms is especially common if the new genre is of a somewhat risqué nature; such was the case of Pauline Réage, the pseudonym under which an editorial secretary with a reputation of near-prudery published Histoire d'O (Story of O), an erotic novel of sadomasochism and sexual slavery.
Pseudonyms are adopted by resistance fighters, terrorists and guerrillas often to make enquiries more difficult, to create and maintain an aura of mystery, and to protect their families from reprisal, although other reasons often may exist.

But the set of values that a very large subset of pseudonymous cases "performed" was that of the republican citizen who had divested the particulars of individual identity in order to appear in the public sphere as a featureless equal.
So insofar as the eighteenth-century pseudonym involved a performance, it was quite often a performed submission to a public norm of civility and citizenship.
At some point in an exchange, pseudonymity as such might be declared "cowardice," at which point the opponent would reply that the content of the argument should be all that mattered (implying that the complaint about pseudonymity only arose when the debater had been trumped).

Netochka Nezvanova is the enigmatic author of NATO.0+55+3d software, a set of QuickTime externals for Max.

Famous for her temperamental behaviour, exasperated outbursts and unashamed assaults on others in public, Netochka (or nn for short) made her presence felt through public mailing lists such as Rhizome Raw and nettime.

 Hablot Knight Browne (pseudonym "Phiz"), 1815-82.
Browne was a relative unknown replacing Seymour, a well-known artist and a highly experienced periodical cartoonist who had sold satirical prints in his own right.
At first, Browne adopted the pseudonym "N. O." (Latin for "Nobody," the nom de guerre adopted by Ulysses in the Cyclops episode of Homer's Odyssey).
Soon, however, he became "Phiz," an artistic name well suited for the creator of "phizzes"--delightful, effervescent drafts of humour and caricature, as seen in the third plate of Pickwick.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Gnosticism
Origen devoted no work exclusively to the refutation of Gnosticism but his four books "On First Principles" (Peri archon), written about the year 230, and preserved to us only in some Greek fragments and a free Latin translation by Rufinus, is practically a refutation of Gnostic dualism, Doectism, and Emanationism.
About the year 300 an unknown Syrian author, sometimes erroneously identified with Origen, and often called by the literary pseudonym Adamantius, or "The Man of Steel", wrote a long dialogue of which the title is lost, but which is usually designated by the words, "De rectâ in Deum fide".
This dialogue, usually divided into five books, contains discussions with representatives of two sects of Marcionism, of Valentinianism, and of Bardesanism.
