Recently here at WTBW? we've seen an increase in anonymous replies. I'm not sure what to make of it. It could be coming from my regular readers - this I seriously doubt. Maybe my blog is becoming popular - this I more seriously doubt! Maybe it's just an anomaly.
It does raise the issue of people writing in anonymity. I leave this blog wide open and don't even screen replies. I've never removed a reply either, even the asinine ones. I will, of course, remove anything that is blatantly offensive or immoral. I've just never been a fan of writing in anonymity because it seems so cowardly. I know the anonymous reader/replier will be offended but so be it.
On the positive side, however, it does give you information you would otherwise be denied. And maybe that's a good thing.
