The Internet

+ - Cowards with convictions

Malfourmed writes "The internet has been a boon for cowards, claims Sam de Brito of the Sydney Morning Herald. Emails, instant messages and, of course, anonymous blog-postings, they're all a refuge for the passive-aggressive who hides behind technology, stridently demanding their opinion be heard, then refusing to claim ownership of their words. de Brito puts out a call to take responsibility for what you're posting: Take your clothes off (metaphorically) people, he writes.

Is he right? Would the internet be a better, friendlier, or at least more mature place if we were all naked, devoid of the cloak of anonymity?"

Computers can figure out all kinds of problems, except the things in the world that just don't add up.
