Here's the dilemma we have faced. It's lovely to have the potential for a free and easy discussion. Whether one is a state worker or a private person with too much as stake to affix a name, they can still ask a question, offer a comment, propel the debate forward. I never wanted to cut that off.
Trouble is, it also allows people to propel the debate into the gutter, which is where a determined few seem to enjoy living. I've never enjoyed giving them that opportunity.
So, what you think? Anonymous or not?
