You get a choice on Blogfinger. It’s freedom of speech, and that’s what we want.

 

By Paul Goldfinger, MD, Editor @Blogfinger.net

In recent days there has been a brief discussion on the social media site “Nextdoor.com” about Blogfinger’s policy of allowing anonymous commenters to express their opinions.  Nextdoor insists that all posts be under the person’s full real name.

Kennedy Buckley, a trustee of the OGHOA and a member of Nextdoor.com, said this publicly regarding our policy:   “Comments without a name = fake news.”  This condemnation by good old “Grover Ken” trashes over 90% of the comments on Blogfinger.

But what Kennedy forgot is that he was a regular commenter on Blogfinger for years.

When he was commenting on BF, 90% of the time he signed in as “Ken,” and that was done because he didn’t want to reveal his full name, and, only on rare occasions, would he would sign in as “Kennedy Buckley.”

And, at times, he would contribute using pseudonyms such as “The Dreamer.” “The Nag”  “Biased” and “Curious”  and there were many others as well—we lost count.   And then, one day, he stopped commenting because he joined the silent majority at the OGHOA’s Board of Trustees.

So I guess the H in HOA for him means “Hypocrite.”   Or maybe we could use the term “Double standard.”

And this, by another Grover on Nextdoor.com named Diane Giangeruso:  “If you can’t give your name then you can’t give your opinion on the permit parking. Speak up and be proud 🌞”

As for Diane Giangeruso’s comment, you can see the defect in what she said using her real name.

Although that website Nextdoor should be very useful if you are looking for an endodontist or a Portajohn, I doubt that it will be a good forum for serious debate because of the real name requirement.

THE ANDREWS SISTERS: We send this song out to Kennedy Buckley of Ocean Grove–a guy who can’t make up his mind.
