Bob Gotch: Run Comments, But With Guidelines

I would be in favor of letters to the editor under the same guidelines as a normal newspaper or magazine, with verified name, address, and phone number. Anonymous pseudonym entries seem to encourage recklessness and faux positions being expressed. I say that as a longtime reader and commenter on the San Francisco Chronicle’s SF Gate website, which requires no verification of authenticity of any kind, just an account.
