Why your Modern Pharisee is NOT anonymous

There is no danger of me being "outed."
I am not anonymous so anyone thinking to gain leverage over me by finding out who I am, and publishing that fact, has been beaten the punch, by me. For those that smear, and make it personal, the danger is always there.
The NY Daily News - "Speaking out for the first time since a court order forced Google to reveal her identity, blogger Rosemary Port tells the Daily News that model Liskula Cohen should blame herself for the uproar.

'This has become a public spectacle and a circus that is not my doing,' said Port, whose "Skanks in NYC" site branded the 37-year-old Cohen an 'old hag.'

'By going to the press, she defamed herself,' Port said.

'Before her suit, there were probably two hits on my Web site: One from me looking at it, and one from her looking at it,' Port said. 'That was before it became a spectacle. I feel my right to privacy has been violated.'

The pretty 29-year-old Fashion Institute of Technology student added that she's furious at Google for revealing her identity, so much so that she plans to file a $15 million federal lawsuit against the Web giant.

'When I was being defended by attorneys for Google, I thought my right to privacy was being protected,' Port said."
Hat Tip to Ann Althouse. Other than being who you are and saying who you are, it's probably best not to pick on people, over the internet depending on the cyber shadows, to hide you.

I think that anonymous commentary is horrible.

If you are willing to say it then you should back it up with your name and reputation.

I've noticed the most vile things are often said by the anonymous.
