The Great Comment Debate.

So the poll is just about to close and I wanted to make one post on the topic.

The way the votes are going to shake out it would seem that the majority of those that care would like the ability to post anonymously to remain. But - I look at those that don't care as people willing to go along with whatever is decided by the board owner.

So chances are the few that post anonymously are going to have to register in some fashion or not be able to post - because from an administration standpoint - we just don't have the time - nor the inclination to babysit what sometimes are referred to as 'trolls.' Take it from me - I have helped moderate a WIDE range of sites and I don't care to add another to the list.

In the next day or so I will most likely turn off the choice to post anonymously - however those that really want to participate on this site shouldn't have too much trouble finding a somewhat anonymous way to post.

And please remember - this is not a "PC" site - chances are some people will be offended - but that is how I wanted this blog to be when I conceived it. The intended audience for this blog is mature adults that realize they can disagree about HGs in the house and still respect others opinions - even when they are completely wrong - people who LOVE Big Brother but also realize it is just a game. It is those that come here and get offended - or try to resort to Jr High tactics to insult others - that are the reason we need to tighten things up a bit.

Debate away - but please respect the decision and I hope everyone that has been participating continues to do so - even CRAZY ALL CAPS ANONYMOUS guy.

well said Mike.

Well said, and I know you underwent a huge thought process before saying. This is a wonderful site and it keeps me up to date on the house. Thanks...

August 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterCrayola58

totally agree.........go for it!

I signed up with a google name and ID but now do not know how to use it to write on here. For those of us who are Anonymous due to Computer Stupidity. Can you maybe type a brief little explanation?Thanks, Karen

Some anonymous poster might actually be affliated with show....

August 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I'm glad I can no longer post anonymously as I will never be confused with "April lover anonymous person" or "ALL CAPS LMFAO anonymous person." From this day forward, I will be known as "Heidi"- non-anonymous poster and long-time lurker of the BB Gossip 10 (and 9) board. I've come out of the closet.

August 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

Just trying to see if this works!

August 18, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterdutchgirl50

I doubt that any of the anonymous posters could be from the show. They're all way too smart to be writing some of the stupidity we've seen here - no way could Brian, Stephen, Angie, and...oh boy, never mind. Hi Jessie!

August 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterScott

I stopped commenting awhile back because I didn't want to be apart of the rude comments being said. I'm pretty sure I'll start commenting again!! Thanks Mike!!

If you have a google name and id - then you can click on the google/blogger button and fill out your ID and password - then click to publish your comments.

August 18, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterIndyMike

I lurked on here for a month before signing in, I think. I'd forgotten I had a blogger account.

Also, I think all you need to do is input your googleID/email and password under the comment box and comment away.

Question: Will removal of tha anoymous feature also turn off the name/url feature (where you don't need to give a url)?

August 18, 2008 | Unregistered Commentermlt

well i guess its back to 2 or 3 id names to keep thigs going. You can ask black ohio sky/zoot manthis to show you what im talking about

He's the original zoot doggy dog and a few copy cat anons too

so when you see him posting, just remember that he was one of the ignorant anons chatting with you all the time

August 19, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

I don't see what the difference is - posting with a fake name is like being anonymous. No point in making an issue of it - changes nothing.

August 19, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

LMFAO @ MY INVITE... EVEN GOT A KICK OUT OF THE CRAZY PART TOO...

FOR SURE I WILL BE COMING TO THE NON-ANON ACTION-FILLED SESSIONS ALTHOUGH I GOT TO SAY THAT IT WONT BE QUIET AS MUCH FUN NOT BEING ABLE TO SEE THE "IDIOT" WHO WAS PRETENDING TO BE ME. TO TELL THE TRUTH, IM PROUD OF THE GUY, HE ACTUALLY GAVE ME A TITLE WHICH I DID NOT HAVE(CRAZY)...LOL

BUT ITS ALL GOOD... YOU WILL KNOW WHO I AM RIGHT AWAY... I STILL DONT LIKE ANGIE'S GAME PLAY, HATE THE GOOD VS EVIL THEORY AND WILL DEF BE KEEPING MY EYE OUT FOR THE PEOPLE THAT AGREE WITH EVERYTHING CERTAIN PEOPLE SAY... LMFAO

OH AND I HATE APRIL'S AZZ TOO... THATS THE IMPOSTER WHO BE LOVING HER... LMFAO

August 19, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

MLT - it appears the name/url option disappears as well when you take away 'anonymous' - afterall you could put anything down for a name/url.

August 19, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterIndyMike

I had voted to take away the anonymous option. I had 2 reasons behind my choice.

First, and not most important, was the tard factor, or trolls as Mike nicely put it. That really hasn't been much of an issue on this blog except for recently.

Second, and more important to me at least, was just identifying and interacting with people new to the blog. Say there are 5 posting anonymously, it's had to separate and differentiate between them.

So yayyyyy and welcome to the unmasked, so far Karen, Heidi, Dutch :)

August 19, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterLil

I guess you can count me in as one of the unmasked, lil. I just got a google account and it wasn't nearly as painful as I thought it would be.

August 19, 2008 | Unregistered Commentermlt

A question for caps-anon: Do you not read what others write? Nobody, and I mean nobody, on this site has ever said a certain group of people are "good" and the others are "evil". I've pointed this out multiple times but you can't seem to comprehend this.

August 19, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterScott

I had quit posting because I keep getting attacked by an ANON, accusing me of being people I'm not and saying that I was posting things anon which I was not. Stopping the anon posting won't stop personal attacks. I was attacked again right on this thread. I am NOT Mr. Mantis!

August 19, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterBlack Ohio Sky

as lil said

Second, and more important to me at least, was just identifying and interacting with people new to the blog. Say there are 5 posting anonymously, it's had to separate and differentiate between them.

thats a big part of the issue I have with it as well

August 19, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterChristine

Off Topic - but why can't they sing in the house? I have never understood that!

August 19, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterdutchgirl50

Dutch, if they sing in the house then BB has to pay royalties on the songs.

Its also why the go to fish when they play the wake up music

August 19, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterChristine

black ohio, you know you lying man so cut the crap. No one really cares how many accounts you have. its not a felony and you havent been attacked. The truth has just been told. You did it and im going to let everybody know you did it even if i have to get more ids just like you did. i didnt know you could do that so thanks for the info.
