Hey ScottIf people don't want to leave their name then surely they should be free to do so? I mean they could write Bill Bob or Joe Bloggs what is the difference if you know or think you know their name.While it is your blog and you are also free to please don't delete comments- it ruins the open forum that your blog should be. (I think anyways)

An open forum cannot exist without honesty.

A very well respected blogger told me that it was against the rules of blogging to delete comments. So unless I misunderstood them I have to agree.
By Anita, at 2:40 PM, June 24, 2005
Haha. Nice - an appeal to a greater authority. Sorry my blog has different rules. Another well respected blogger hates anonymous comments. See Nato.My rules are as follows:-- Anonymous comments will be deleted.- Comments slandering others will be deleted.
By Scotty, at 2:55 PM, June 24, 2005
Clarification - Anonymous comments providing a name will not be deleted - they will obviously then not be anonymous comments. I have left anonymous commenting on so that people without blogger accounts can still comment.
By Scotty, at 3:02 PM, June 24, 2005
Just to throw in my two cents, I also don't like anonymous comments, they can be used for good, but they never seem to be - 90% of uses for them don't really have sufficent justification (Perhaps a frank discussion of something private? I dunno - nothing even close to insults).I wouldn't go so far as deleting them, unless they were repeatedly abused. But, on Scotts Blog, Scott makes the rules, and has made the rule he will delete anonymous comments. Can't really argue with that. If you post an anonymous comment, he will delete it, regardless of content, so its your fault, its not like he's censoring you.Granted, the rules may not have been clear in the past, but a little bird tells me this is going to change.

Oh Dear!! Someone took Sally-Ann's name in vain - that's slander. Deleted!

Ever since I deleted my blogger account because of their poor service (my blog updated for other only after about 2-3 days - and many blogger accounts still do for me) I have used "anonymous commenting - with a name.So Jono and Alex won't get any comments from me. I will not stoop to supporting blogger just so I can express my opinion.The rule about supplying a name I like. If you forget to supply a name (as I sometimes do) and it's not obvious who it is, a followup comment correcting it works.If anyone wants to slander me now send it to email@example.com. That's where all my junk mail goes.

bah. corrections: *others and I missed the closing quotation marks. Bad spelling doesn't count ;-)
By Allan, at 9:01 PM, June 24, 2005
Hmmm...I'm greatly averse to the deleting of comments. Freedom of speech and all that. I would only delete a comment if it were either comment spam, or highly offensive.Censorship is what the left is all about.I also discourage and dislike anonymous commenting, but would hesitate to delete such a comment, but rather infor the commenter of my disapproval.

Alan, I've never had trouble with blogs (Blogger or otherwise) not updating. What I do have trouble with is my browser caching pages and not displaying updated material until I force a refresh.
By Dan, at 9:17 PM, June 24, 2005
Even clearing the cache didn't help me see Scott's blog several times - even after he had sent me a message telling me there was one there.As I said on Nato's blog - blogger left a bad taste in my mouth.On the topic of freedom of speech, unsubscribed commenting access is supported by that principle isn't it? :)
By Allan, at 4:30 AM, June 25, 2005
With freedom comes responsibility. In general you can't get a letter posted in the Herald without supplying a correct name, which they checkup on.Anyone is free to have their comment left on my blog - as long as they leave a correct name to it, and don't slander others.
By Scotty, at 7:39 AM, June 25, 2005
And when I say in general - you can't unless it is a really unusual circumstance.
By Scotty, at 7:40 AM, June 25, 2005
i can't believe my comment got deleted *sniff* I was happy in my anonymity...

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
