Stebbijo Gives Anon Political Bloggers Hell

Political anonymous posting! That is it — it burns my bucket! Really not so much on my blog - because here I am rather noncontroversial and most of my comments/posts are lighthearted. Makes life so much happier. But on some blogs the debate can rage. Here in CDA , Idaho where I live, the local elections are Tuesday and everyone is busy throwing in their last ditch efforts to campaign against or for their candidate of choice. However, some of the biggest mouths are the anonymous ones. How can a person consider them seriously during an election when they wear a mask? I don’t get it. Yesterday at Huckleberries — it was going on with anonymous posters. There is a big stink over a residency requirement concerning a potential candidate running for a council seat. It is getting down to where does he make love with his wife, now. Some of them want proof. You know the ‘ole saying, “Home is where the heart is.” On Huckleberries, you can be anonymous, but you have to tell DFO (his blog) who you are, but nobody else knows. I finally drew one poster out who told us the names of her powerful brother and uncle. Like that makes a difference — who in the double H is she/he? I was related to the last cousin of the first uncle to the sister of my step-uncle’s brother and his last name was Roosevelt and I am anonymous. Get it? How do you feel about anonymous posters?

They are lame. Political anonymous posters probably sleep with a mask too, so their significant other does not know who they are, either.


Anonymity is for scaredy cats who still need their Mom’s apron string.
