I am renewing the call for those who post comments on the Web to be required to provide their names. After having dealt often with the comments section, I am feeling downright depressed by the meanness of some people. The commentators insult the LDS Church without any sense of decency and heap insult after insult on anyone who tries to defend it. They openly admit that if they were forced to use their real names they would be more cautious and not say such inflammatory, false and malicious things.
It has come to the point where I barely am willing to look at some comment boards.
There needs to be a more positive tone to the dialogue. Until some basic level of decency is restored to the comment sections, they will continue to breed hate-filled comments.
