Anonymity: it's not just about persecution. Internut was for me always supposed to be a place of pure ideas, information. Suspicion of "facephags" comes from this: WHY are you doing it? The real question is why you'd introduce your real identity/background, not why you'd hide it.
In case of someone like @nytdavidbrooks or Matt "Coelenterate" Yglesias answer to why they have hostility to anonymity is simple: who would read them if they were anons? Have nothing new to say, wouldn't get anywhere. It's all PR men. Much of altlite is the same
Anonymity should be mandatory on the internet. It should remain a place of pure ideas, free journalism and information, free research. The introduction of real faces and names, not anonymity, is what allows for govt., corporate, and other manipulation of online media
