Comment On Comments

It’s come to my attention that at least one commenter on the blog, and possibly others, are using the names of different commenters to post.  It’s happened a few times and with the names/handles of more than one frequent commenter.

I can’t see disallowing anonymous comments or comments that use a derivative name, eg “the anti-Chris.”  Readers can make their own judgments about the merits of various comments.  Commenting under someone else’s name, however, is a different issue and has to stop.  The comment policy here is pretty light touch and since I added comments in ’07  I’ve had to delete less than handful that were not appropriate and have only closed comments on a few posts that attracted too much spam.

I’d like to be able to continue in that vein but cannot do that if the space is abused.   I respect the ability of all viewpoints to comment here, whether I agree with them or not, and would ask that you do the same by observing some basic norms.
