Mods, with all of the technology available now. Why don't you require real names to post on these forums. It is easy to hide behind a screen name and toss mud back and forth. Just a thought

I believe the Mod feels things won't get as exciting if people have to stand behind what they say by providing their identity.

I have nothing to hide. My Name is Robert Jank Grew up on Clinton Street. Graduated Mynderse 1978 And Mean Gene, I think I know you....If I am correct, you ran a Roll off truck for me when I ran Feher Rubbish in Geneva. That guy was a clown. Glad I am done with them.....sorry if you left with bad feelings. Point is I dont hide behind a screen name with my thoughts or opinions. How about the rest of you?

Using real names would make people accountable for what they say. That would lead to less participation. Not too many people want everyone to know how stupid they are or how crooked they are.

Can't we just issue a supoena, find out who's posting, and then harass them? wink
