A compromise solution in the anonymous comments debate
ChicagoTribune.com | HowardOwens.com | BuzzMachine.com
Rather than banning anonymous comments, Eric Zorn suggests letting people comment and discuss issues using a consistent identity of some sort -- an identity (a screen name, perhaps) linked to a user profile and reserved exclusively for that one person. || Howard Owens: "News organizations that allow anonymous comments are committing a grievous ethical blunder." || Jeff Jarvis: "The issue isn't comments or identity or registration or tools. The issue is how you play host."
