in reply to Huffington Post: "Let's Do Away With Anonymous Posting"

This is the first time I've seen this discussion on PM, so as someone who's interested in the concept of anonymous contributions on the internet, I'd like to know where's the place this discussion is actually happening.

    I'm not sure what you're looking for, the topic has been discussed here many times, see links in existing responses to this thread.

      The only links I found were to other posts by the OP, showing his affinity for attracting downvotes, but no links to actual previous discussions of the HuffPost article. Am I missing something?

        "This is the first time I've seen this discussion on PM, so as someone who's interested in the concept of anonymous contributions on the internet, I'd like to know where's the place this discussion is actually happening."

        Unsurprisingly this section Perl Monks Discussion deals with discussion of the Perlmonks website. The article in question has a comments section should you care to comment on that. Responses to the many efforts from this user have not all been restricted to anonymous posting on this site, but general responses to preserving anonymous posting and issues including creating throwaway accounts in order to post which seems to negate efforts to required an account (and associated identity) to post. Various freedoms/rights groups post content on this subject from time to time (EFF etc). Who do you want to air your opinions to? Which organisation/body are you looking to reach? If you're looking for something specific.

        > but no links to actual previous discussions of the HuffPost article.

        Ano-Posts in PM were already discussed and you'll find even more links within the threads already linked.

        Some started to highlight general points of the HuffPost article here, but this didn't attract much discussion since many consider it off-topic ...

        I think there are better boards to discuss the internet culture in general, I'd recommend using a search engine to find some discussing this HuffPost article.

        Cheers Rolf
