Who is this anonymous guy anyway
Printer-friendly version

This guy seems to be posting everywhere,

Seriously though, when did this start and why?

Re: Who is this anonymous guy anyway

We enabled anonymous commenting about 10 days ago as an experiment to see if it encourages more conversation on the site.  Anonymous comments need to be approved by a moderator before appearing online.  

So far, I'd say the upside is that it has increased the amount of commenting a bit without resulting in too much more spam or nastiness. The downside is that anonymous users cannot edit their posts, be contacted, or held accountable. I'm copying a few related comments from this thread, but would wecome others' thoughts.

“Anonymous” is no different than making a fake name.  Right, P?

Some people like me didnt know why my comments were appearing  with my name  not mentioned .  But I figured out it was most likely because I forget to log in . Also at work I do not want to always log in on sites . It seems to me more people are leaving messages that is good . If something was too bad  it would be deleted before being posted . I would suggest some more interesting topics being brought to the table  like nice travel places near busan but not just the beach and pomomsa. Or a real  debate topic with lots of emotions like the eating of dog meat by koreans    If you ever want to wake up some students talk about that topic , The topic of the koreans not liking koreans dating westerners is really an old issue and shows you that some koreans still live in the cave with their racist thinking .

Now after seeing it everywhere, I don't care for it. Knowing who posted something serves as a kind of accountability. 

After reading several posts by certain people I know whose opinion I trust, with Anon, who knows...

Most people dont use their own names in the pusanweb ID . Some people maybe use more then one ID so for me it doesn't matter . I judge the post by the viewpoint and idea not the name . I dont care if its from annony  if its a good view thats cool .

Checking our site logs, the only login attempts I see around the time of your post are for ID's that don't exist.  Are you sure you have a Koreabridge account?  When Pusanweb.com moved to Koreabridge.net in 2009 users needed to create new accounts.  If you'd like to troubleshoot this, contact me with your ID and/or email address and we'll try to sort things out.

I guess the verdict is in, anonymous guy wins with way more posts than named posters it seems.

 

I guess this has become a messege board...
