A topic has come up several times in chats between my husband and I, and now Paul. It’s about Internet anonymity. Our consensus appears to be that it’s too much responsibility for some people.
Sure, it’s nice to be able to say what you want behind a wall of facelessness. But it allows cowardly assholes to be as abusive and spiteful as they want, without fear of the normal retributions of such hateful behavior–such as a fist in the nose, or people knowing what sort of person you are.
