I understand the value and importance of anonymity. However, I don’t understand why people insist on the cowardice of hiding behind the face of anonymity to say nasty things. I distinctly remember being taught, “If you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all.”
If someone has something to say then just say it. If they don’t have the audacity to say something directly, making themselves known, then I honestly believe they shouldn’t masquerade their thoughts anonymously just so they can take a cheap shot and feel comfortable about it.
We’re not going to like what people have to say from time to time but that doesn’t mean we should be assaulted under the veil of anonymity.
