Another Plea for Keeping Our Anonymity

Headed by Bill's observations on anonymity, I have noticed several other articles in The Grapevine in recent editions treating upon the same subject. Although each had a slightly different approach, I noticed that all met on the common agreement that anonymity is one of the most important features A.A. has.

Yet, I have seen many instances in which the tradition--I think it certainly is that--is violated. No doubt I have been guilty of a few violations myself. In fact, isn't it true that many of us have, and isn't it also true that all of us should be on our guard against treating this matter carelessly?
