How you say? Carnival is over.
I know people think they can say anything they want online and we do. I also know there can be good reason to remain anonymous and that it is permitted - however ...
I don't like it. It's very often dishonest. I've said it before and I'm saying it again. I can cite examples of such dishonesty - I save them to my spam folder. Some call it cowardice - I'm not sure about that - it strikes me more as hypocrisy. I know the anonymous like being anonymous or using a pseudonym - that's fine. If you know me or comment regularly here, I prefer you let me know who you are and we can discuss your issues openly. You can call me out, accuse me of anything you like - just do it openly. However, if you don't want to be associated with me or my blog, or let it be known you read me, or if you don't want others to know your true character - don't visit the blog or place comments here. It's a simple solution.
Anyway, I ran across a great post by Fr. Angelo Mary on a slightly different issue wherein he discusses the problems associated with online anonymity and pseudonymity.
