As I cruised the blogosphere and posted my comments today, I noticed a few comments from "Anonymous". Anonymous posting is an interesting paradox in the blogosphere. On one hand, this person wants their thoughts to be read and interpreted, but not enough to claim them as their own. I suppose I could empathize with anonymous comments on a severely controversial blog which may cause problems in one's personal life, but given that many applicant blogs are simply about each of our experiences, both successes and woes, I guess I don't understand the true controversy that warrants an anonymous post. Or is it these commentators are simply too lazy to fill in their personal information? We don't ask for your social security number and birth date in order to steal your identity, but we do ask for a name. And as most people in the blogosphere use one, we'll settle for an alias.
