The Hoot has an excellent editorial on whether bloggers are entitled to anonymity. The piece quotes the story of a recent case in the UK where a newspaper “outed” a police officer who was an anonymous blogger. The whole piece (link again) is worth reading but the crux is this:
Bloggers are nothing if not vociferous about their rights and freedoms. In deciding where anonymity should be an entitlement for all bloggers the Hoot’s view is that the relevant question to ask, is are all blogs in the public interest? Perhaps there should be different rules for those that are and those that are simply platforms for opinions and views, often sweeping and abusive ones.
