in thread Huffington Post: "Let's Do Away With Anonymous Posting"
this means that any responders must sign in to post on that person's threads.
The fallacy there is that the OP owns the thread. But posters only own their own posts. At best, the poster could say she doesn't want anonymous replies to her own posts.
