Truth & transparency in the blogging world. What a great idea!

By Diane Silver

Writer Tom Grubisich proposes what I think is a fantastic idea in today's Washington Post. He writes that it's more than past time to make people accountable for their online opinions. It's time to make people register with their real names to post comments and blogs and other virtual soap boxes.

A little sunshine would do the virtual world a whole heck of a lot of good.

One of my greatest frustrations is that Blogger doesn't force people to do that. I can either allow no comments, moderate all comments or allow folks to post and still hide behind aliases. This allows hate mongers to flourish.
