A fresh perspective on anonymous postings
Original post made by Peter Carpenter, Atherton: Lindenwood, on Jan 25, 2012
"The reason that many media sites are moving to eliminate anonymous comments and/or requiring moderation at some level is simple: Total freedom resulted in a level of 'conversation' at sharp odds with the tone the site wanted to maintain," Weiss said.
So the trend is at least moving away from anonymity without some level of filtering. And it's a good thing because the courts are beginning to show clear signs of agreement that pure anonymity without limitations is not wise.
