Comments Policy

I've just received a comment on a review I posted in this blog. The comment basically agrees with what I said in my review but expresses itself much more harshly than I would. The comment is also anonymous, which makes me feel uncomfortable about publishing something that could be construed as an attack on somebody's professionalism. I've decided therefore that I'm not going to publish anonymous comments.

It's a tough problem, isn't it?

There might be an option in blogger which disables anonymous posts.

I don't know, I've never looked. But it was partly to avoid such problems that I decided comments would have to be moderated. I have seen the results elsewhere of unmoderated comments and it can get ugly.
