Check your birth certificate

Chances are, you weren't named "Anonymous."

"If you aren’t going to say something directly to someone’s face, then don’t use online as an opportunity to say it. It is this sense of bravery that people get when they are anonymous that gives the blogosphere a bad reputation."
Mena Trott, Times Online, 12-06-06

I agree. And due to recent happenings, I'm not allowing anonymous comments anymore. This was a hard choice to make because I do believe there is a place for anonymity, but because I don't like threats and I don't want my blog to turn into a mudslinging forum, I'm done with it.

  1. I've thought about not allowing anonymous comments and/or moderating, too. So far I'm keeping it as is, but after this last little tiff I am leaning towards changing something.

Please review my blog comment policy here before commenting. You may not use the name "Anonymous." You must use a Google Account, OpenID, or type in a name in the OpenID option. You can make one up if you need to. Even if your comment is productive and adding to the conversation, I will not publish it if it is anonymous.
