I find this an interesting piece, as it is one of the more important aspects of online communities that hubski has to deal with. What I think is that anonymity lends itself to more freedom, which has the implications that yes, there are more people lying than if there was no anonymity, but more people telling the truth too. I think we have a fair balance here, where it is completely possible to stay anonymous but if you don't mind your doxing profile that is equally possible.

At the same time I don't want to think about the consequences of my writings. It shouldn't limit or change what I want to say.
