It’s not often I find myself agreeing with the Feds but Jamie Falloon from Wairarapa makes a valid point about people hiding behind anonymous internet user names (Cowards log on to spray abuse 22/1/15). However it should be kept in mind that the door swings both ways with defenders of fresh water also being sprayed with abuse by anonymous contributors. I believe that unless you have the intestinal fortitude to put your name to your comments then you don’t deserve an audience. The most rewarding debates I have are with people who disagree with me, it’s surprising how often they help to form my views. But I think I deserve to know who they are, and that’s why I will never respond or even read anonymous comments on a website. There are a myriad of challenges confronting us all and unless we can discuss things in a rational and civil manner then we achieve nothing. Knowing who we are talking to is a great start.
