I’ve stated before that I think online commenters to blog posts or news articles should identify themselves.  (I don’t really have that problem here.)

There’s a poll on this issue at The Washington Post. It’s breaking slightly for those who favor anonymity.  If you don’t, weigh in.  If you do, please disregard this post.

There’s a Post blog post about this.

Here’s my take:  If a newspaper requires identification for a letter to the editor, how can it justify anonymity to online commenters on an article?
