Why comment anonymously in Town Square?
Original post made by stephanie enos, Barron Park, on Sep 17, 2009
By designing Town Square in this way anyone can 'have a go' at any individual or group knowing that they have that cloak of anonymity. To my mind this encourages mean spiritedness and rancour and diminishes any meaningful public discussion.
It would make a big difference in the quality of debate of any subject, were it a requirement for people's comments to be attributed. After all, people might think more carefully about what they will post if their names are attached and be more considerate of the online climate that they help create.
