As many folks know, I’ve long supported allowing participants to comment using a pseudonym on this blog and, before that, on the Newton TAB Blog. But recently I’ve been having second thoughts. Rather than going into my own reasons now, I’d like to hear from you first.
Is it time to require that all participants use their real name? Would it make you more or less likely to participate if we did?
I will say, that if we did make the change, I wouldn’t be making the decision alone. The final decision would rest with the team of bloggers who contribute to this site.
