Anonymous Comments Begone

In the comment section of most blogs, I notice a lot of 'Anonymous' signatures. Why? It seems to me anyone who believes in freedom of speech and the press, if they're going to comment on a blog, why don't they signature with their own blog name or, at least, think up anything besides 'Anonymous' so the blogger doesn't have to comment back like talking to a wall?

Well...Here's how I deduce the various types of commentators:

Type 1. Loaded with paranoia. This guy/gal feels like his/her comment might bring either the target blogger to the front door; the FBI or CIA; the Wrath of God or anything else that frightens him/her even more the he/she already is about the world in general.

Type 2. The no-self-esteemist. This commentator, even if he has a really good comment, thinks so little of his own opinion that they hide behind the word 'Anonymous'.

Type 3. The Grand Illusionist (or know-it-all). This bird is usually twenty-five, a college drop-out, has never traveled further than his city limits, has never read more than twenty pages of any book, forms his opinions from hob-nobbing with his buddies at the local tavern and, once set, his opinion couldn't be changed with a stick of dynamite. His comments usually make about as much sense as the war in Iraq.

Type 4. The Secret Profanist. This bird is probably a religious fanatic (or athiest), loaded with guilt and by spouting all the profanity he can in his comment, gets rid of his inner frustrations with his life in general...which isn't that much to start with.

Type 5. The literally handicapped. Another high-school (sometimes Junior high school) drop-out who constructs sentences that are ubnreadable and has no idea of the content of the blog he or she is commenting on.

Type 6. The office employee. A loafer who doesn't want to get fired for blogging or commenting on his employers time.

Type 7. The lonely guy/gal...Just wandering aimlessly around the blogdom hoping to find a friend.

Type 8. The new age linguist. This bird usually has a blog with a name like Radhot or Big Cool and takes great pride in creating sentences in his own language, like: 'Me G-friend ez tripped n as a turfic bod.' Murdering English is his favorite preoccupation (and sometimes his only occupation).

And then there is probably the worst 'Anonymous' which is the Spamer. They play the oldest sales game around which is playing the odds: Get a hundred people to look and you will find one who will buy, no matter what the product. Tabloids, used junk car salesman and land investment scams have abided by this philosophy for decades, if not history.

Thank God and Greyhounds we have the delete key.

Some people who comment as Anonymous don't have a blog.But I often think they coul dput their name at the end of the post.If the comment spam gets too terrible you can always turn on the word verification prompt.

Why? You don't seem to be the type to hide behind 'anonymous'.

what in the hell did I say? I meant to say I will change to not allowing anonymous comments, which I did yesterday.

If the spam stays down, I hope i will not have to evoke "word verification"
