My question was rhetorical: I understand that people cannot (for a host of reasons) always use their real names.
There is simply no excuse whatsoever for some of the “in your face” rudeness that I have witnessed on this site over the past few weeks. I was beginning to wonder if this had been taken over by some of the posters to the Comment is Free section of the Gruaniad which hosts some of the most vile and bile laden vitriol I’ve ever had the misfortune to read. And it is emphatically not an issue of VK being 99% responsible. It is about time that posters took personal ownership of and responsibility for their comments. If they cannot make a point without resorting to personal abuse, then don’t make it at all.
