July 2011 Archives

Anonymous comments may be going away

There's an excellent chance that, very soon, you won't be able to comment anonymously on openmikes.org listings.

"Report a Problem" will still work, as a way to tell me, privately, that something needs to be corrected. But public comments will require you to login; probably via Facebook, to make most people's live easier.

"Comment wars" on a few listings (almost always anonymous), filled with personal attacks, are a prime example of what happens when people don't have to take responsibility for their words. That, and one particular commenter who uses an endless succession of false names (I delete most of that before you folks need to bother with it), are motivating me to eliminate that option.

If you want to speak up against this change, now's the time.
