Why use initials?

Something I've long wondered about official Scientology documents. It seems every time they put in someone's comments, they credit the source with initials rather than name. What is the deal with that? Nobody else does it. Names seem easier to trace than initials too. I don't get why initials are used instead.

I think it's that way that only they know who it is. They know who that initial belongs to but an outsider wouldn't cause there could be more than one names coming to the same initials.
just when you thought it's all wrong it proved otherwise

I get that for insiders, but I've even seen it with businesses that are supposed to serve non-Scis. An acting school, for example, will have professionals like Kelly Preston and J-Lo leaving praise under their real names and then a bunch of other comments are displayed with only the commenters' initials. What is the deal with that? It seems weird to me, that's all.

Dunno....maybe just weird habits.
