Why all the social web angst? Readers Sound Off {Download Squad}

Mar 7th 2007 1:29PM I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who feels put off by all of this.

I too think anonymity is the problem. Egos go unchecked. You can argue loudly about how right you are without any fear of real confrontation. Without consequences some people will go as far as they can.

I also think people believe that what they say as their aliases online isn't really connected to them in real life. Like a character in a movie, it relieves them of responsibility. "I dind't say that, user1234 said it."

Places like digg which I enjoy on many levels are notorious for this. You don't even have to leave a comment, just click thumbs down and the person goes away. Yuck.

Moderation might help, but 'cops' are human and we all know that can cause problems too. Anyway, censorship by a third party isn't real freedom at all.

I too believe real names should be required as well. I am who I am online and use my real name pretty much everywhere. If people take issue with something I have to say I am very easy to find (google me and you'll see) and am more than willing to chat about it. Personal responsibility helps me sleep better.
