Maul555: The days of anonymous commenting on The Huffington Post are numbered.A man can dream...
GoldSpider: HuffPo an echo chamber? Who knew?
CJHardin: Just where the fark in TFA did it mention that HuffPo is an echo chamber?
GoldSpider: CJHardin: Just where the fark in TFA did it mention that HuffPo is an echo chamber?It didn't, but then I don't need the Boston Globe to tell me that grass is green either.
Elegy: Because people never set up fake Facebook accounts etc for the purposes of trolling sites that require "identification?"
reillan: I guess I should come clean and admit that I am Dave Matthews.
naptapper: If only Fark would do the same thing maybe I could go back to enjoying the comments. Sigh.
sulco: I've never understood the sites/newspapers/etc that use Facebook accts as their line of authentication for commenting on their sites.
SacriliciousBeerSwiller: The point is the comment made no sense at all and implied the article stated something it did not.
megarian: reillan: I guess I should come clean and admit that I am Dave Matthews.I'm so sorry for your condition.

czetie: The fact that occasionally, the true identity behind an especially appalling pseudonym might be revealed resulting in extended social consequences is a bonus, but its not essential.
Random Anonymous Blackmail: You have never been to the politics tab.
redmid17: ESPN did that and it basically killed their comments section. Whether or not that's worth it or the aim of the measure is another thing I suppose.
Badgers: You lost any relevance you may have had when you sold out to AOL in 2011, so just be quiet, you annoying greek wench.
skinink: I stand 100% behind her changes, or my name isn't Orville Reddenbacher.But she does have a good point and I partially agree with it. Behind a cloak of online anonymity too many people act like jerk and make things too personal. Here on Fark people go onto the Sports Tab, of all places, and act like they're defending the Constitution the way they behave towards other people over stupid subjects.I like Drew's method better. Give the User power over whose comments they want to Ignore by making a list. It makes Fark more enjoyable to read.
