RULES OF ENGAGEMENT
But what about comments left anonymously? Specifically, should a blogger reply to such? My inclination is no. Not because I am ornery—I do not think this is a major part of my makeup. But I have identified myself when I blog and if someone wishes to comment on what I say, I deem it appropriate in terms of mutual transparency for them to let me know who they are. If this is off the wall, let me know (but don’t do it anonymously!).
