Commentary by Stephen Downes

Huffington Post has decided to end the practice of anonymous comments. It won't make a difference, argues this post, unless they show they actually care what comments they receive. As we've seen with Facebook and other sites, signed non-anonymous comments can be just as vile as the anonymous kind. The only way for a site to ensure it has good comments is to have someone read every one and delete the detrius.
