I also think online bullying and harassing may rise because now people know who is really making the comments. They could also get their private information online and who knows what they'll do. This is another form of Big Brother to me.

I wonder if other websites will follow suit, and if so, then some people are going to be afraid of voicing their opinions online.
I respectfully disagree here. Anonymity is power for those who would bully and harass.

A couple of local papers have abandoned anonymous commenting. The result was a significant drop in comments, and a complete elimination of insults, innuendo and false rumors designed to hurt others.
