The conviction of the anonymous online comment

One measure of strength of conviction of an online commenter here or anywhere is whether they own what they say. By own I mean are prepared to put their name to what they say. Here are two comments from last night. Neither made it through as they were the first by each email address used. While I don’t moderate comments, the first sits in a queue for approval as part of the blogging platform protocol.

If this commenter would care to provide real details, the comments can run as everyone is entitled to their views.

I’d be happy to meet and introduce them to plenty of retailers in this channel who are doing well, growing and navigating to bright futures.

I am in Cairns at a newsagency conference and there are plenty here who would disagree with the comments.

    I think you might have caught a real ‘Wally’ there Mark.
    I guess we could all assume he did not do well in his chosen profession and would like to lay the blame on the rest of the world.
    Sadly, Wallys tend to do that…..

    The language used says it all. The ‘wally’ is a creep and not worthy of a post. The post discredits the Blog’s aim and content.
