As we enter the offseason, I know we'll have a lot of interesting conversations about news, rumors, etc.
I also know that last offseason, we had a rash of anonymous posters who came in here and hid behind their anonymous tag to sling shit and try to cause trouble.
I've considered banning anonymous posting a few times if for no other reason than it's really confusing to have conversations with two or three unidentified people-- you never know who you're responding to/having a conversation with.
But on the flip side, anonymous posters can chime in with useful information and breaking stories that we laypersons may not be privy to; additionally, I don't want to victimize people who don't read the blog often enough to register but still want to make comments.
What do you think- should I ban anonymous posts or not?
I'm thinking of (at least) starting a policy where I'll delete anonymous comments that aren't 'signed' at the end by at least a pseudonym.
Here's a guide to anonymous posters as to what they should do.
Hay J0e, <--address your comments toward the person you are responding to, to prevent confusion.
Yoo suck. I am s0 much better than you b3cause I work 4 the Spirits and Im intelligents. It was t0talY rong to trade Jon Kelley!!! Kelley was rly nice!!
And BTW Kennedey is a gr8 manager bcause he's a manager and you're not, and since you're not a manager you're not allowed to decide who's a good or bad manager! Which is why I'm proposing a constitutional amendment that says only ex-Presidents can vote for President... I mean... how can average scum laypersons understand the time and commitment that goes into being the President? If you've never been the President, you have no right judging how good of a job he's doing. <---this is where you place the body of your condescending message
-BUterriers01 <--here's where you put a pseudonym so people know who they're answering PS BC Sux!
