Internet Anonymity

In Sunshine for the Virtual Town Hall Tom Grubisich talks about the anonymous blogger:
On the Internet, Mr. anticrat424 is continually elevated to the podium, where he can have his angriest thoughts amplified through cyberspace as often as he wishes. He can call people the vilest names and that hate-mongering, too, will be amplified for all the world to see.

Or, as is stated in "Miss Leftist Manners' Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Communication with Right-Wingers. "You can't have a battle of wits with unarmed adversaries."
