Tennessean's New Comment Policy

Postby GuardianDevil001 » Thu Dec 01, 2011 7:01 am

Evidently Randy Rayburn's widdle feewings got hurt so now you must log in via Facebook in order to post comments to online articles on the Tennessean's website: http://www.tennessean.com/article/20111201/NEWS01/311300144/More-media-outlets-ban-anonymous-Web-comments?odyssey=tab|topnews|text|FRONTPAGE.

Posting anonymously has a purpose. Once others are able to discover your identity they can at very least harass you online and at very worst stalk you in person. We have (hopefully) all heard about the importance of maintaining online privacy and I hope we all remember this when it comes to visiting the Tennessean's website. The Tennessean's new policy has nothing to do with maintaining civil discourse. It has everything to do with finding a new source of revenue to replace their ever-declining subscriber and sales base.

In addition to being anti-gun, Facebook is hacker central. Extremely unsecure and they will sell your information to anyone with a buck. this just means that comments will only be open to the ignorant and liberal. But I repeat myself.

I don't have or want a FB account so I guess I am being discriminated against by a IMO a rag publication. Oh well I haven't read it in many years anyway.
