Manjoo, Farhad. “Anonymous Comments: Why We Need to Get Rid of Them Once and for All.” Slate Magazine. 9 Mar. 2011. Web. 5 Oct. 2014. <http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/technology/2011/03/troll_reveal_thyself.1.html&gt;.

This source is speaking about how a writer feels about anonymity. The writer goes into detail and explains that if people are no longer allowed to comment anonymously it will reduce the number of negative comments. Even though some people do use certain sites such as Facebook and Twitter to verify who they really are they seem to still comment negative things. Overall it has dramatically shot down the amount of trolling on this website. One huge fear that people have about using their accounts to make comments is that their personal information will get hacked. That is completely false and will not happen. I think that this article is somewhat a good source and I may be able to use it in my paper because it gave me a better insight on how effective taking away anonymity is.
