Recently I have noticed a few articles in various sources discussing the end of anonymous online commenting in some media outlets. I am certain we have all seen the sort of comment online that is the equivalent of shouting fire in a crowded theatre. I also sometimes find myself drawn to the comments sectiions of the daily newspapers only to find myself leaving nearly as quickly when I read the predictable commentary from other readers, some hate filled, some merely uninformed, many that are just plain nuts. So is this a challenge to free speech and the right to open discussion, or a legal issue that needs to have boundaries and regulation?
