I would think a newspaper of all industries would understand the need for anonymity.

So will Pres. Obama be apologizing to the American people for lying to them about Obamacare?

As I plan to keep watch on this Chisago County thing, it better not turn out to be some donkey-in-elephant-hide that had access to the website to put up those disgusting pics and words.

For example, I found one lib in the Daily Kos who admitted to "working undercover" on a conservative website, pretending to be a fundamental Christian and posting accordingly.

How low will they go? I dunno. Do they know? Could it be so?

"The Chisago County Republican Party is very sorry that something so clearly improper (either intended or in poor taste) ever made it to our page," part of the apology read.

"The apology, signed by the Chisago County Republican Party executive committee, also said the organization could not pinpoint the person responsible because "a large number" had administrative rights to the page.

"Those rights, which allow pictures and updates to be posted, were revoked by the committee until the person responsible could be found, the statement said."

According to willgrr's infinite c/p's, it only takes one bonehead to taint an entire village.

So be it. Is Obamacare working out fine for everyone? Do you get to keep your insurance AND your doctor if you like them? No? And why is that? A Democrat told you that you could, and it's not turning out that way? Well, that's too bad...

MDN you asked the question, and you got the answer a vast majority want real name used. So what action are you going to take MDN?

Probably cancel everyone's screennames and have them make new ones. Names will be compared to IP address records to verify that the new screennames match.

It would be that easy.

I suspect this development has come about because the tenor of conversation in these forums chases people away from the site. Making people use their names is seen as a force of accountability, sort of like how you have to sign your real name to opinion page letters.

Uh oh, looks like everyone's getting into a snit because this suggestion I've made for a long time is now being taken seriously. Oh no, we cannot make people accountable for what they say on these forums; oh no, we cannot make people take personal responsibility for what they say in here; oh no, we cannot tear away the curtain of anonymity that provides the mask necessary to hide the shame that would otherwise be visited on some of you for your utterly disgusting "commentary".

Give a man a mask, and you'll learn much about his character.

I have no fear of using my real name. I am not ashamed of my posts. I believe it or I would not post it. I do not call names or use hate language. Go for it. Sure would perhaps stop some of the name calling on here.

Jack Crab is my real name. It's true!

First Amendment,

As long as I don't write *****graphic content, expletives, then I win.

Call it free association.

America is lost, though, and it is too bad it is being blamed on one individual.

I don't really believe Obama is fully to blame, he's just following orders, nothing much else. He could have been a good president and an outstanding leader. However, he listens to his handlers and they make sure he does what he does. A victim of circumstances.

They're all clowns now and make no mistake, they do know what they are doing, but that makes it all the worse.

I'm getting too old for all of this business of nonsense that the gov goes through every day, so it really doesn't much matter to me anymore.

It never changes, just the names.

Bush was corrupt? Oh, really? Just the clowns behind the scenes, not George Bush himself. A victim of circumstances, as it were. Goat book to boot.

We're all fools.

libs want to be able to use their traditional mob mentality methods of harassing whoever doesn't believe in their messiah. they don't believe in disagreeing as much as they believe in destroying who doesn't agree the govt knows best.

It is people's, not peoples'.

Come on, Minot Daily, you can do better.

Do I have to use President Obama's real name too, or will it be ok to use his real names, Oblunder, Omoron, Obomba, Obozo, Oblameo, and on and on?

I will apologize for using Poetic Justice's real name of stupid moron.

I won't do it again.
