Should online commenters be allowed anonymity? I tend to think yes.

November 23, 2009

Here is an interesting post arguing that those commenting on blogs, etc. should not be allowed to remain anonymous.  It’s really a publisher choice, assuming the site is not government run (not much to debate).  At least with certain topics (e.g., politics) it probably makes sense to allow commenters to remain anonymous.  Voting is private for a very good reason.
