I understand why people might wish to remain anonymous - If their real names were linked to comments some could face problems in their work, social or family life.
Anonymity allows people to say what they think without repercussions.
The secret blog comment is as important to politics today, as was the secret ballot 150 years ago.
However I did think that this comment posted by a nonny was quite hilarious
Who is NM? Is his identity publicly known? Or maybe it's a she? Just wondering
People who post comments under Anonymous said... clearly have no right to try to "out" those who post under regular monikers!
