Anonymous Comments Are Now Open Across the Sugar Network!

Anonymous comments are now enabled across the Sugar network! They've been open on some Sugar sites earlier, but now they're on all the editorial sites. We love hearing what all the registered users have had to say for all these years, but we also want to give newcomers a chance to weigh-in when they stop by without necessarily having to register.

We still have rigorous monitoring in place — TeamSugar will be making sure that everyone abides by the rules of conduct, and we have new filters in place to keep the comments clean and constructive. Plus, in order to comment you always have to enter an email address. We're always looking for new ways to hear what the entire community has to say, so hopefully we'll be hearing from more of you across the network!

I was trying really hard to appreciate all that our Sugar Community had to share with the anonymity bit... But seriously, there are some people who are definitely abusing this, and not being respectful of one another. This needs to be rescinded and go back to registering for the ability to comment. Be responsible for what you say and back it up!

I've been watching the anonymous commenting since this announcement came out, and I really think allowing them was a mistake. Silly arguments, rude comments, and nonsensical comments have been popping up. This site has always been a favorite of mine because the commenters have created a community. I think anonymous commenting is harming that community.

YAY!! Sugar is spinning faster down the tank. I have seen some spam and it is really annoying. Registering isn't hard and you can actually set it up to not receive many emails. I basically don't receive any. I like the fact that I see many of the same people here and I have some sense of who they are. I say they make people register but allow people to post anonymously by an option in the comment box. It encourages people to register but also allow anons some freedom.

I haven't seen any of this "rigorous monitoring" yet Pop - actually, I have seen the opposite. People are posting catty, rude, and inappropriate comments - it has changed the whole feel of Pop, which used to be a nice way to zone out for a while.

I'll be honest and admit that I only registered because anonymous comments were not allowed. However, the sign up process is simple and most definitely worth it. There will be so much more spam here now that anonymous comments are allowed and I'm not looking forward to it =(

So this site is gonna turn into the clusterfuck that AOL and yahoo is? I personally can't wait for those idiots to come over here and proclaim that everything is the Mexicans fault and how we [Mexicans] are ruining this country. Oh, and their countless misspelling and rambling that make absolutely no sense should be entertaining too.

Boo! what's so hard about signing up if you're going to be commenting?

Yeah, I'm not a fan. Is there any way they'll reconsider this decision since most people don't agree?

This is just dumb. Really people, all you have to do to register is pick a name and give your e-mail. If you don't want to receive e-mails from Pop you just unsubscribe. And it prevents annoying spammers. As much as I like reading about millionaire matchmaking sites on EW. And seriously, the first time someone posts "FIRST!11!!@11", you guys should turn this off.

Thanks Mac! :) I had already googled the acronym though. :) Yeah, it looked pretty bad. Yuck. I happen to be a conservative. But I don't like racial attacks. I don't like people who are like that. It makes people think that all conservatives are like that. :irk:

hartsfull: It was on IDon'tLikeYouInThatWay dot com. The posters on there use every racial epithet known to man, and the guy who runs the site is an extremely conservative Southerner. After the election, everybody was up in arms and flinging the n-word around, among other things...ugh. Any pro-Obama comments at that point were considered "too liberal." I tried to email the guy about it, but he ignored me. :shrug:

Some of you are being such brats. I live in a small beach town. It's nice. Nice enough that we get tourist. The bulk of these tourist are fantastic and bring a much needed economic boost to our communities local businesses. Some of these tourist suck and come here for the wrong reason. We deal with the bad ones. If you don't deal with the bad ones then they think it is OK to come to our community and wreck it. Should we ban tourist just because 10% of them suck? I equate registering to moving into my town. I have all the benefits of the full sugar networks and blogging platform where the tourist don't. Change is hard. If you do your part to keep your community the way you like it these sites will not go the way of having comments like on perez hilton or tmz. Or you can complain and do nothing and let the riffraff run you out of your own neighborhood.

What?! You were too liberal? There's a place somewhere that has such concept?!! I'm flabbergasted! Where is this place?

I joined this site when I got banned from IDLYITW after saying something too liberal just after the election. I thought that pop was a great change from the racist, homophobic, just plain hateful, uneducated, and rude people who would post on IDLYITW. Since anonymous posting has been enabled, I've been getting emails from really old threads I subscribed to that now have NEW anonymous comments with spam. Some anonymous comments are harmless, but I don't think the good outweighs the bad. To the anonymous posters who are saying they don't want to register: just go for it, who cares? I don't normally sign up for websites online, but pop is legit. No unwanted emails, nothin.

You know that's a very good point! I'm sorry sugar folk but I have to agree why are we working to keep it nice? They should register. Otherwise why are we all registered? Why even have the profiles etc. Other news stuff makes you register. Oh yeah, you quit doing news and started that other thing.

This is a really poor idea and i'm sure you already see that. I'm not even going to bother to report spam anymore since you guys have invited them in yourselves. First Dear, now this nonsense.

I think this is a bad idea...and completely unnecesary. If people want to comment, they should join and register, just like the rest of us.

I'm with Mamasita and Hartsfull. I don't want to immediately trash all the anonymous posters, because some of the comments are actually very interesting. Sadly, the other 99% are a real pain to go through. Sorry if I don't sound very productive, but why should registered members spend time reporting spam from people who don't want to spend literally 2 mins registering? Yes, registered posters often get in pretty aggressive arguments, but as people said getting to know users allows for interesting discussions and helps people respect each other's opinion. It's difficult to argue back at someone who's just "Anonymous".
