Should news websites allow anonymous commenting on their sites? Why or why not?

I miss Pain and that pain in the @ss Serr8d too, Funditto....Serr does come in here, from time to time....same old modus operandi.

I'm using a little Latin today in honor of "Adeste Fideles", one of my favorite Christmas carols:

Thank Ben for the warm wishes. It looks as if I am in for some whether around Bowling Green if I leave now. I am going to stop over north of Dayton, Oh and continue on tomorrow. And maybe a detour to DWT to pick up my daughter, who is do in tomorrow. Depend on time and weather.

LOL on Nemo's 9:54.

Wish I could post my 2011 Christmas Carol here...it's entitled, "Merry f*ckin; Christmas, muthhah f*ckers"....It's getting rave reviews locally...it's in G major, as I hear it, with a bright, upbeat tempo.

For what it's worth, I just found out that the head lobbyist for the Keystone pipeline is good ol' Grover Norquist. Explains a lot, doesn't it?

Just wondering about NCP going to Facebook. Could it be the question of their posters not wanting their identity to be known whom they are because or their comments regarding the issue of the usurpation of the Oval Office by "Barack Obama"? Hmmm. Just wondering.

I make a comment in the Tennessean, and I received hate mail. We have crazies out there.

By: yogiman on 12/22/11 at 2:00

Not to change the subject, but... have any of you wondered why out "guvmunt" continues to give financial "aid" the China (that's our American bucks they're giving our enemies) while borrowing from them at the same time?

What are they doing, placing one had out with our financial aid to them while holding the other hand out for them to lend it back to us?

By: BenDover on 12/22/11 at 2:12

How do you know he's the 'head' lobbyist?

By: yogiman on 12/22/11 at 2:33

yep, pswindle, I agree. We have a bunch of crazies out there. Know what I mean?

By: BenDover on 12/22/11 at 3:20

Oh c'mon guys... that was a high hanging slow motion soft-ball lofted right over the plate.

...I miss laughing at House of Pain..." You saw him naked, too? Just after he swam in cold water, of course.
Nemo: Ann Arbor has a fairly fine University there, too.

Have a nice day guys.

Fun article to read for Christmas eve: www.reformation.org/frank-marshall-davis-obama.html

If they go to facebook this is one poster who'll be gone. I don't trust the city government.

By: dargent7 on 12/22/11 at 7:06

judyb: Still use a Beta-Max, an 8- Track tape player, a cassette, a rotary phone?
Good riddance. No Body cares about you people who think they're so important.
Stay OFF the board. Talk to yourself.

By: Ask01 on 12/22/11 at 10:08

Now, dargent7, that was not very nice. We should be able to exchange ideas without rude behavior intruding into the conversation.

Personally, I do still have cassettes and several rotary telephones. I also have a television with dials and no remote. All work exceptionally well.

My major complaint, as noted previously, is there are many I have encountered on local boards I believe are unstable and possibly inclined to violence. There is no way I want to provide any easier way for the mentally disturbed to discover my address.

Additionally, having read several accounts of people being terminated in connection to comments made on Face Book, switching to such a system would effectively curtail some peoples comfort level when posting. A post need not include negative opinions about an employer or the company to prompt a dismissal. What happens when the poster is a dedicated Democrat employed by an equally dedicated Republican? The same concept applies to any number of combinations which might highlight differences in ideological, religious, or other views which might result in animosity.

If the City Paper wishes to. in effect, censor or discourage open and honest posting, then they should follow through. If they, on the other hand, desire to buck the trend, and stand out from the follow the leader mentality, they should maintain the staus quo.

I'm in agreement with judyboodo; moving to Face Book will lose many people. I do hope those remaining are very happy.

Maybe NCP is different than other sources, Ask01. My name, address and telephone number has been given to the public by dumba.. through his personal ignorance and I haven't been attacked yet.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/24/11 at 2:15

Everyone knows you are a fool yogi and that you attack yourself daily.

By: Captain Nemo on 12/24/11 at 2:16

PS yogi you are not worthy of an attack. You are an idiot.
