Outing Bloggers

R.G. Ratcliffe has an interesting post with links related to a proliferation of lawsuits seeking to require anonymous bloggers to identify themselves. I am of a mixed mind on this subject. On the one hand, I would hate to be the subject of such a lawsuit, though my identity is thinly enough disguised that I suspect that a fair number of people know who I am anyway. My additional thought is that there is not anything honorable about lobbing verbal grenades while under the cloak of anonymity. Blogging anonymously should be done with a sense of responsibility toward the subjects about which one rights. I certainly attempt to do that, and would be willing to listen to any criticism that I fail to do so.
