To Me, Anonymous Commenting is "All Good"

Crotonblog: Letters to the Editor, Croton-on-Hudson, New York 10520
Much has been said about the pros and cons of anonymous posting on Crotonblog. Some have accused contributors of being cowardly and fearful of signing their real names. Whatever one’s thoughts are on the wisdom of this practice, the value of the postings remains unchanged.

Not only have the numbers of bloggers increased dramatically over these past few months, the range of topics and the discussions have become more and more applicable to what’s happening in Croton. Most of the posts reflect real interest and/or concerns about complex matters and points. And, many of those ideas and suggestions are well-researched.

If the facts or history surrounding one of the areas are wrong, you can be certain someone out there will correct the inaccuracies and supply a different perspective. This is so healthy for good, meaningful debate. The suggestions are varied and cover many different approaches. We don’t have to agree or accept all the opinions, but it sure reflects a great brainstorming of ideas and this has to be “all good!”

Keep it up bloggers and thanks Crotonblog. You continue to supply a valuable service.

PS: Does anyone else note that the comments have become much more civil and non-personal than many in the past used to be?

Sure, the comments are more civil and non-personal now, just wait until the next village election!
