Comrade, you can report any comment you consider unsuitable or offensive by clicking on the 'Report this discussion/comment' link and giving a reason.

Anonymity encourages greater participation. There are some who wish to express a challenging view and wish the view itself, and not them, to be the subject of attention. On the legal sections, it may offer them protection.

And who knows, maybe someone influential wants to add a comment without going on the record.

"Therefore, why should IH allow Anonymous posters? What have they to fear from identifying themselves"

Care you provide us with your real name then "Karl Marx"? Get over yourself.

You call yourself Karl Marx and have a go at anonymous posters...

You should change your name to Groucho because you are a comedian...

It would so tickle my funny bone if, in response to Nonny No.2, the response was that, rather than an avatar, Karl Marx is the posters real name.

I agree with you and the fact that I seen over the last year many of my people that I have enjoy being banned due to these people.

I believe the term is 'Schadenfreude'?

'Sour Grapes' is easier to spell. 'Karl Marx'....seriously, if you invested as much time trying to repair the relationship with your neighbours,(or whoever it is that you have to pressing desire to complain to your housing officer about) as you do in griping bitterly on these forums then you we be a happier person!

Someone once observed to me that 80% of the stuff in our lives we can't control, other people, bills, world affairs....our neighbours, but 20% we can control. If we focus on the 20% we can influence rather than what we can't, we can achive far more. My advice to you would be to direct your energies to something more positive!

There may be some posters who may need to cloak their identity as they work in the housing profession and I have no problem with that.

However, I do get teed off when there are so many 'nonnies' - I don't oblect to pen names as then I can 'see' who I am reading rather than a 'nonny' -- if you get my meaning (getting myself confused now!).

I am a real person and am who I say I am but then, I'm just a simple tenant and not a housing professional.

    Good Job the Information Commisioner's Office did not get to hear about the mass release of personal data or IH would be in such deep do-do that their owners would be stretched to afford the fines.

    You are welcome Rexroth

    I think you will find little response as hardly anyone comes here anymore.

    The Newspapers that have gone down this line I now refuse to view. In part, these are publications that I would not have wished to pay money to, but when particular items of interest were highlighted would have accessed the views and details available that way.

    It appears that the whole site has gone down hill will functionality issues and failings, not to mention declining standards of journalism.

  • posted Anonymously, 01/08/2013 6:38 pm in How about a POLL on the restriction of comments to articles?

    Thanks but no thanks Tenantplus - I am not a victim or a fool and do not believe the worse of everyone or generalise tarring all with the brush of a very, very few and so do not feel that you would change things for the better for the likes of me or would be representative the likes of me.  I feel it would deteriorate into an oppositional and ineffective relationship with my landlord and employer (separate organisations) if the likes of me were represented by attitudes such as yours - although I am speaking more as a tenant ...

    Clearly new records have been set.

    Much better, thank you.

  • From Chris, 28/08/2012 4:01 pm in Social - Affordable - Private Rent

    The targeting of grant supported purchasing for key workers, like right to buy, was a poor use of taxpayers money in that no new asset was created, but worse the market activity it caused added to the artificial inflation of house prices across the board.
