I really dislike Anonymous comments on my blog. I haven’t figured out how to get WordPress to disallow them automagically, since I don’t really want to require an email address, either. Hmmm…. For now, comment moderation is turned on, and if you don’t give a name and an URL OR a name and an email, I’ll probably decline the comment unless it’s truly inspired. While porting over (painfully, by hand) the posts and comments from my Blogger site, I notice that “Anonymous” just seems like an excuse for people to be rude. I’m not down with that.
If you’re going to flame me out, go ahead, I can take it. But have the courage to identify yourself. After all, I had the courage to identify myself with what I wrote, so it’s only fair. Some of the “Anonymous” comments to earlier blog posts aren’t going to get ported over. If you were the writer, you’re welcome to re-submit the comment, but have some backbone and own it this time.
