What a Dumb Idea

The Anchorage Daily News, often a cesspool of leftist ideology, makes yet another dumb decision.

Due to their own, self-admitted failure to monitor their website, adn.com has decided to require Facebook accounts for anyone to comment on-line.

Bloggers - better than most - understand the can of worms which anonymous comments can bring.

But really, Daily News?  Facebook?

Heh my closest local paper did that as a direct attempt to keep the radical right wingers (including yours truly) from commenting. I am sure they were quite happy with themselves until they started seeing how far the direct hits were falling.

Will be interesting to see how long it lasts.

Preppy, you're quite likely correct. Their statement said "because you have to use your real name on Facebook..."

Not true, of course.
