"I'd be so much more comfortable posting anonymously": Identified versus anonymous participation in student discussion boards


Anonymity removes a major barrier to entry for most people. How do we know this? Because the proof is in the pudding… over 95% of our forum users choose a username that protects their anonymity.
Anonymity breaks down power relationships between interlocutors. We have observed conversations between 50 year olds and 13 year olds that would never take place in a face to face environment.
Anonymity allows an individual to express an opinion without the fear of intimidation. Cyber bullying is a serious issue but is a personal matter. Anonymity greatly reduces the ability of anyone to bully or humiliate anyone else within a forum.

Do you log IP addresses?


Yes. All servers record IP addresses in various logs. The software running the site also records IP addresses to prevent bot and spam attacks and to enable a way to block problematic posters. IP addresses are never displayed in posts nor are they used to identify posters unless we are required by law enforcement to provide that information.


Do I have to post an image?


Most boards do not require it.
