Of course, you are welcome to use Anonymous. But it is just as easy to use a screen name. There are (at least) 2 ways:
1- Register a Google name. You need to open a gmail account. In your account settings, your "Display Name" will be your screen name. When you post, just select the "Google" option on the scroll down menu and log into your Google account.
2- Use the scroll down menu. Instead of selecting "Anonymous" at the bottom of the scroll down menu, you will choose the option right above it: "Name/Url". Click on "Name/Url"- see STEP ONE screenshot:
Under "Name" enter a screen name. You can leave the "URL" field blank. Click on the "Continue" button- see STEP TWO screen shot:
You're ready to comment under your screen name. If your "Cookies" are on, the name will be saved, but you will still have to pick the "Name/URL" option every time you comment.
See how easy that is?
The days of the Mason bullies gloating that "finally" our sites are silent, and that our "new-found silence" CAN'T "keep [us] safe" are OVER.
So, partake in online political discourse without fear from SLAPPers and bullies. And feel comfortable using a screen name.
