Anonymous comments and trolls… the end is near!

I was absolutely delighted when a colleague of mine, Todd Miller, forwarded me this headline:

Huffington Post to ban anonymous comments

Reported by CNN’s Elizabeth Landers based upon a keynote Ariana Huffington delivered at HubSpot’s annual Inbound Marketing Conference in Boston, MA.

Said Huffington, “Freedom of expression is given to people who stand up for wha

t they’re saying and who are not hiding behind anonymity.”

I’ve long opined that anonymous comments were the bane of the internet, a spawn of pure evil, and provided no value whatsoever to the internet. In fact, anonymous comments create liability and harm the public.
