Anonymous Blogging - NightJack

Clive Davies has a post with some useful links about anonymous blogging and articles on the NightJack case. My thoughts on this have been echoed throughout the Blogosphere. It was not in the greater public interest, NightJack should have remained just that. I value the blogs written by police, doctors, nurses and judges, they shed light on an inner world that would be closed off otherwise.

Anonymity is of course also used for reasons outside of professional conflict or safety concerns. From insults to persona's to escapism to honesty, these are what makes the internet so wonderful, it's freedom, the Times has taken a little of that way for reasons purely clouded.
