many arguments in this article can be used against anonymous commenting. for example: "Tim Coles, the stations digital sales manager, said people dont come to the site specifically to comment, but then react to the news of the day, which can sometimes produce emotional responses." illustrates what's wrong with news media in america today, mainly the focus on "emotional responses". if making people take responsibility for what they say in a public forum causes them to think before posting can only make people more 'rational' and any social force that engenders more rational thought is a goal worth striving for.
