The fact is that the cloak of anonymity breeds rashness and the Internet is the quintessential version of this cloak. In looking at things like Youtube comments, it’s apparent that we’re continuing along the trend of a lack of a sort of code of conduct for discussion on the web.
The same rules we use for discussion in real life don’t really apply to the web. Whether or not they should, is up for debate, but I think that we should start moving more towards requiring some sort of identity for discussion on formal medias because I think this is the only way we can start applying some propriety to discussions on the web and start making the Internet less extremist. Just an idea to think about for today.
