    Sounds like a rather silly idea to me.

    I've been fighting on-line Anonymity for years.
    We need more personal responsibility.

    In fact, I'm pretty much anti-anonymity in
    public places. All crime that has been
    committed against me has been done by
    people practicing personal anonymity.

    I disagree. Freedom of expression is often aided by anonymity. And while your right, it can cause a lack of personal responsibility (among other things), it also has the benefit of allowing us to discuss things which we would normally not discuss. It encourages the spread of open thought and deep discussion that you really don't find anywhere else. I feel anonymity is a fundamental part of not only free speech, but also the vastness and depth of that free speech which is carried through these series of tubes.

    Of course, abuse of such anonymity is probably what you are against- and I agree there. But solving the issue of abusing anonymity by removing anonymity doesn't seem like it's such a great thing to me. I'm in favor of leaving things just how they are.
