Is the use of fake names and anonymous remarks by posters actually counter-productive to adult discussion of important national or state issues?
While I understand that some posters feel the need for security because they might not want their employers or social contacts to know their views, it's possible that the overuse of such devices allows persons with a "bullying" mentality to thrive and possibly compromise intelligent discussion of these forum topics ... Do some (but not all) of these persons hide behind their fake identities like some southern "good ole boys" hid beneath K.K.K. hoods in order to lie, libel, threaten, or intimidate others? Is this a "problem"?
