Anonymous commenters are generally the bravest.
A number of these have made the hasty conclusions that I delete comments to keep points from being proven on this website.
Actually, it is pretty easy to comment on this site.
You do not need an email address. You can make up any name.
I make no attempt to identify anyone.
Some comments are held in moderation by the settings I have chosen. Mostly, what these do are weed out what appears to be spam and people who put too many links on their comments.
Although I have not yet done so, I will delete comments I believe are libelous or unfairly attack others. I am less likely to delete comments that attack me.
However, if I believe it it is a lie, and the person commenting is anonymous, I may delete it.
I understand people wish to be anonymous because they are exposing Mr. Raniere. He is a vengeful soul. I support them in their anonymity.
But supporters of Mr.. Raniere need not be timid. Come forward and be brave.
If he is the most ethical man in the world, why need you hide?
If you can prove I am wrong and Mr. Raniere is a jolly good and noble soul, then prove it — in your own name.
I will never try to punish anyone for telling the truth or sincerely trying to get at the truth.
Unlike Mr. Raniere, I will not descend to lying about him or others.
That is the distinguishing factor between us.
Finally, I can enjoy criticism of myself [especially if it is well written] and controversy brings readers.
