    “Anonymity through the use of pseudo-names or handles is allowed, but commenters should use the same name for every comment entry, so as to not falsely appear to be more than one person commenting on the same or several matters. Select a name and stick with it.”

    Those rules have been followed.

  3. Post

    Attempts to restate the above rule incorrectly are just that. Incorrect. Such comments will be considered for approval based on whether they are false.

    Once again, no anonymous commenter may use more than one “handle” to post comments. We have no way of knowing if Mr. DeMaio posted comments anonymously on Rostra. We’ll take him at his word, that he did.

    If someone posts comments using more than one name from the same computer/device, the comments are flagged. It isn’t perfect, but it assists with the Rostra admins enforcing the rules in almost all cases.

    With many of the same commenters posting, new names jump out. Although it is impossible to know real names, the system is very accurate in identifying anyone trying to post under multiple names. It is rare that it happens and we address it.

    If anyone is going to concern themselves with whether even a few of the over 8,500 comments posted here since 2009 include any violations of the comment rules, we hope you’re just as concerned if any of the hundreds of thousands of comments posted on the UT and other news sites are all from real people.
