From now on, Just Up The Pike will no longer allow anonymous commenting. The Blogger software allows you to put your name (or an alias) down when you comment, so I hope people with thoughtful, relevant things to say will do so. Any anonymous comments made after 12 midnight August 9, 2006 will be deleted.
I seriously dislike the direction this year's election has taken. People making insults at myself and others, racist comments, or just out-and-out lying from behind the shield of anonymity make it only worse. I may say things that people don't like, but at least I am willing to put my name on them.
