Reveal yourselves, trolls

After reading Kyle Carruthers’ excellent article about M-103 in the Feb. 22 edition of the Yukon News, I went online to see just how hateful the comments were.

Yikes! There is opinion and there is rabid, frothing-at-the-mouth hate mongering. The bigoted anti-Muslim comments I read fell into the latter category.

Here is a suggestion. Why not make it a requirement of those wishing to comment to disclose their full name and area of residence? (Ed. note: We’re working on this.)

Many trolls are cowards. It would discourage hate mongering and make the onerous the task of editing comment sections a little less like living in a toilet.

I appreciate having two excellent newspapers in my community. Keep up the good work.
