I'm intrigued by the fuss raised over Nihil Obstat in general, and his/her identity specifically. That blog's popularity somewhat befuddles me. I suppose I should see the "service" performed by Nihil as a good thing, given that some readers not sympathetic to the views expressed in St. Blog's blogs might be put off by a spelling or grammatical error.

But how we humans love a mystery. Won't there be an inevitable let-down when their identity is exposed? Isn't it smart of God not to totally reveal himself (not that we could absorb it anyway) given that we love to search?
