In the BBC article there are several photographs of the man in various active poses, and smiling to the journalist as above. His first name is given; then it reads, "..who does not wish his surname to be revealed"

I don't get the facepalm. He doesn't want his surname revealed, and so the articles explain that's why they're not revealing it. Am I missing something?

Just seems a pointless motion, given that he's gone public. :snooty:

Says the guy posting on a public forum without revealing his name :roll:

Nothing personal, I just find it odd how much people seem to struggle with basic conceptions surrounding privacy these days. Mostly young 'uns, so it's probably me just trasitioning to being old and yelling at clouds...

Yeah.. but I'm hidden behind an avatar, a username and a VPN from time to time. I haven't told you half my name, sent you my photos, my rough location, described the nature of my serious condition and then stopped short right there claiming anonymity lol.

But yeah, I want exo! Looks cool and I hope he gets to keep it
