Like many bloggers I feel I have to say something more about anonymous comments. First of all, if anyone feels the need to be "anonymous" on the blog, I suggest contacting me by email where they can give their real name and allow me to dialogue with them. I can think of only one reason why someone might want to remain anonymous and that is because he/she is afraid of what someone else who might read a given blog will think of them or how they may react to them. In that case I suggest contacting me by email. I do moderate comments and have allowed some anonymous ones to be published, but I would much prefer visitors to give a name and, if possible, a link (this is a good way for me to discover other blogs).
Sometimes anonymous comments are sent as a kind of jab or rebuke and are not meant to elicit anything other than some semblance of pain (because some of them are designed to hurt). In my view such comments are cowardly and will not be published.
