You would think that with all of the complaining that has been thrown around about anonymous commenting, blog owners(who I am sure are just as sick of it as the readers are) would do something to halt it. However, owners of almost every blog have yet to do a thing about it. Is that because while it annoys them, they enjoy the controversy it stirs up beneath posts.
Sure, anonymous commenting brings a certain vicious flavor to the blogging world. But it's just as useless as it is controversial. And for the writers who are creating posts, it's always nice to hear opinions, both good and bad...but when they come from people who cannot seem to reveal their criticism along with their identities, it down right pisses you off.
These annoyances leave us asking ourselves what can be done about the anonymous assholes who think they are invincible as they hide behind a mask and throw their often ridiculous opinions in our faces. I recently proposed to Noelle, an option that would leave anonymous commenters more pissed off than ever. And that idea was to remove the option of commenting anonymously. With the removal of that option, it just might provoke the unidentified commenters to show their faces in an attempt to express how they feel about being shut off.
Is this idea something you find appeasing? If not, what do you suggest?
From this point on, anonymous comments will be deleted or ignored by me.
Anonymous commenters, you are nothing but pathetic, sad excuses for human beings.
