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?

Does this most 'transparent' administration use 'transparent' measures to cover-up Benghazi?
Like 'transparent' threats...upon even the innocent family members or even hideously sent to Hawaii for R&R?

Security officer Dylan Davies admitted this weekend that he lied to a superior in September 2012 about his whereabouts the night of the Benghazi attack.
Wasn't this your ace in the hole as far as Benghazi Benghazi Benghazi Benghazi?
Davies' admission that he changed his story raises several questions for "60 Minutes." Did the program know Davies once told a superior that he didn't reach the compound?
I'm going to miss starrett's apology.

After hearing over a thousand, the Republican apologies ring hollow.
Stay tuned tho, we'll have some fresh ones by the weekend.

"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?

Seems only fair to bring up the source of this vitriol from LTE,s to Editorial,s to polling questions of the day...Or does this get a pass?
Perhaps absolving the Rush Limbaugh's,Sean Hannity's,Rachel Maddow's, Reverend Sharpton's and any other agenda driven media source, we would then put the responsibility solely on this individual poster who expresses his/her view with equal disdain...
At last, with this mindset we can answer who's responsible for this polarization by placing the blame directly on the individual American...

How many IP addresses can one computer have?
You can have any number of IP on one computer. Even one Ethernet card can have any number of IPs
does it keep the same IP address or uses a different IP address?
It is you to decide to keep or change. If you move to a different network you may have to change the IP. It is like your home address. Imagine you moved your home from one town to another.
I suspect even here it would not stop fraudulent behavior. Google it yourself. I am not that computer savvy but some here are and can get around it somehow.

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.
OK MDN you got your answer, huge % want real name used, to include on your articles. So what you going to do MDN?

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.

So ND'r...The Congressional passage of an act in 1996, revised to upgrade technology standards in 2006 and again in 2011 is Obama's phone program as alleged back in 2009...
So the real "question should be"...What is the Media's responsibility to print the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so save their credibility from their paid subscribers???
This too is todays question...

"I think the question should be whether to allow comments at all."
Been wrestling with your statement ND'r and here's an example why:
"Throw the rascals out?" by Thomas Sowell columnist in todays BisTrib
He states "President Obama's giving away free cellphones during an election year being just the tip of the iceberg — further tilts the balance in favor of incumbents."
When in actuality..."Since the day Barack Obama was inaugurated, the term “The Obama Phone” has persisted. People say Obama is redistributing the wealth by starting a program that gives free cell phones – Obama phones – to the poor. The whole thing began back in 1996 when the Federal Communications Commission authorized the programs for landline phones."
"So, the subsidization of phones began under President Clinton, and has continued under Presidents Bush and Obama." cont
"Black is not the Republicans problem"
We only have your history to judge you by.
How many times have you crossed the racist line?....Hundreds!
How many racist RNC emails have been exposed?...Hundreds!
How many misspelled racist signs have we seen?.... Hundreds!
Oct 30, 2013 [that's less than a week ago]... The Chisago County Republican Party posted a picture of a slavery sale with the title.."Pro Choice?...Against slavery?...Don't buy one."
During the last Republican shutdown was that a Democrat waving the Confederate flag in front of the White house???...NO! It was your party!
Republicans have earned their racist reputations. A quarter of Republican party members even have an unfavorable view of their own party.

"Who will determine here if it is a real name or not?
Certainly not the Minot Daily that allows people like willgarr to have multiple accounts; do you not think he and others will find a way around it and cheat?"
My real name is Bill Garr and what Whistler is doing is called projecting. For you see he is the one with multiple accounts. He is a true Republican whose "Family Values" I don't wish to share.
