I have seen positive and negative anonymous comments. The negative attack, mean, ugly, cowardly stuff is unfortunate. Others just don't have logins and have valid opinions which can add to the discussion. Not cut and dried I think. I think it is up to the site owner to set an appropriate policy that meets their comfort level and site objectives. You can always monitor and delete.

I disagree and I am asking myself if I disagree just for the sake of disagreement or if it is truly to protect the notion that we can operate anonymously at times but still add value to a conversation. According to Webster anonymity is just another word for someone who is nameless or without identity. In some instances especially in my business it necessary to have anonymity for protection. In fact it can be so important, that people come up with a pseudonym to replace their name within the confines of a lawsuit. Anonymity is important for victims; it allows them to come forward in situations where they would not normally do so. With the overwhelming deluge of social media hitting us from all directions I cannot help but wonder if the meeker individuals who have been abused within our different systems feel like they have no choice but to be anonymous or someone with no name or identity. Maybe the outlet of social media will eventually provide a safe place for someone to be transparent.

Adriel, I couldn't agree with you more. Anonymity encourages people to say things they would never say and in such a manner as they would never consider if their names were attached. It discourages civil discourse and polarizes people with opposing viewpoints rather than encouraging them to find common ground.

I couldn't disagree with you any stronger, Adriel. Since you brought the Declaration into this, I'll raise you the Bill of Rights and a little thing called Freedom of Expression. Who am I to dictate feedback must be in the form of a registered voter's name? I have a blog policy that restricts anonymous commenters, but I do allow people to create fictitious names if they choose. People commenting on a presidential Youtube video should be granted the same rights.
