I really liked the guideline proposed by Politics Daily's Joann M. Weiner a few months ago: "Would you post this comment if your mother knew you were posting it?"
Again, we should know this, because in the real world, many people would break the law, burn stuff and steal shit if they thought that they wouldn't get caught.
Saw this and thought it was an ill-judged attempt to start offering insight a la OKCupid. The way I read it is, "Disqus serves comments on sites where most people use pseudonyms. Therefore, pseudonyms drive conversation." The fact people resist using their own names in Disqus basically means they resist tying it to their Facebook account, which isn't the same thing as desiring anonymity. You could be doing that just as much because you're only on Facebook because your friends & relatives are or you don't want friends & relatives to be able to see where you visit on the Internet.
I have come to really dislike Facebook. I actually find more trolling behavior and insult and drama on Facebook than even wading into the horrible flame-wars I saw in some Balkans websites.
I have relatives who have friends who stabbed me in the back years ago. There's one branch of the family who are so non-stop drama that I can't take it, but they are family so I can't unfriend them.
