Why Does Everyone in the PNJ Forums Use Handles?
If we’re all using these forums to have an intelligent conversation, we’d use our real names. I think some of the forum-users like to choose handles so they can hide behind them when they throw around insults.
Why does some users do this? There are some people in these forums that childishly insult local politicians. Some people in forums wouldn’t act this way if everyone knew their names. You people wouldn’t do this in the real world because they would know who you are.
I’m not saying that everyone with a handle is childish, but if we all started using our real names, the children would no longer be able to hide behind their handles.
Will the adults in the forum start using their real names so we can have a civil discussion about local issues?
