I vote maintaining anonymity. If I want my full name posted Iíll write a letter in or editorial.
-Leaving your full name and location where you live allows for others to research all of your public records and social media profiles (Some of those records may reveal items that most people rather keep private or somewhat more private i.e. home address, phone number, spouse and children). Controversial subjects can become personal, and when they become personal they can lead to people acting out and doing ugly things. This County is small, and itís easy to find people. Example: I eat meat, pay the Vet to castrate my male horses, and spay and neuter my dogs/cats, but I rather not have some extreme PETA advocate show up at my house and torment my family for it.
-Anonymity allows people to have a voice on a media site w/o consequence of work. For example they may make a political statement, but if someone has their full name and digs to find out what company they may work for or that they may be a service member, and changes their statement in a way that can reflect that itís something their company or military service represents it can lead to disciplinary actions towards them.
-Although anonymity can lead to people feeling that they can say hurtful comments about others, it wonít stop the more brazen when they use their real names either. It does, however, hold them accountable to a larger audience. Enable content monitoring on the website or review all comments prior to posting.
*****Most importantly I love hearing town gossip, and sometimes people post some juicy stuff. I always find it amusing living in a small community when I run into someone, and can put a face to the name. Iím sure the town gossip will go down if you take the anonymity away.
-I dislike seeing public officials posting comments on the news articles to defend themselves. If they want to write something then write it in an open letter to the press, so everyone can read it easily and ready available. Not hidden 30 comments down. Itís unprofessional. The comments sections are not meant to be used as platform for official statements.
