Zhuo, Julie. “Where Anonymity Breeds Contempt.” The New York Times. The New York Times, 29 Nov. 2010. Web. 3 Nov. 2014.


This article from the New York Times focus on how anonymity is not positive. It goes into detail about how people troll and take things way too far. For, example in the article a girl committed suicide and people went onto her memorial website and started trolling on there opting horrible comments. People feel as though they can act tis way because no one can do anything to catch them. They are not being help accountable for their actions. What is gong on is very wrong and a serious matter. The article also goes on to speak about how websites are trying to create a feature that allows the comment to go to the moderator before it can be posted. This article seems to very very useful because it provides great examples to back up my topic.
