Thank you for your editorial about blogs. Many blogs are valuable and useful. However, I believe the large number of anonymous posts on blogs are problematic at best.
After considerable thought, I have decided that, as a candidate, I will not respond to anonymous questions or participate in blogs dominated by anonymous posts.
At times there is some value in anonymous posting (e.g. protection of whistleblowers), but too many anonymous postings are hypercritical, malicious and/or vicious.
