Anonymous Comments

One of the best ways to exercise self-control is to put your name on everything you say and do. Even better? Your e-mail address.

When people leave comments on my blog I ask for both but only require the e-mail address. Any comment without an authentic e-mail address never goes public. It’s held in moderation until I delete it.

This blog is a conversation. We don’t have to agree with each other. But I believe we should own what we say and respect one another enough to be available for direct private conversation if needed.

I put my name on everything I write here. And you can always reach me at shaun AT If you’re not willing to treat me and everyone else here with the same respect, you won’t be allowed in the conversation.

Dissenting opinions are welcome! Anonymous is not.

Is this a fair policy? If you’re a blogger, what’s your comment policy?
