Journal-World websites to require commenters to identify themselves

Can anyone confirm or deny with certainty that LJWorld has a financial arrangement with Facebook regarding this matter, or is it just done this way out of convenience? They're allowed to make money but it would be nice to understand this situation a little better.

Journal-World websites to require commenters to identify themselves

In terms of civility, this site really isn't that bad. I post under my real name just to keep myself from crossing too many lines, so I see the logic. But, I stopped using Facebook a while ago, and I'm not gonna get back on just to continue commenting here. I thought there was an interesting community established here and I appreciated the extra insight that the comment section provided, looks like that's coming to an end...

Fossil hunter attempting another go at getting state fossil named

That's a pretty good Ebenezer Scrooge impersonation!

Question: is this guy a troll, a goober, or both?

Line-cutting, mobbing has KU Athletics reviewing Late Night admittance protocol

I like the idea of charging a small fee, $5-10, and you have to give your name at the time of purchase; then show ID when you show up to prevent scalping.

Kansas Silver-Haired Legislature endorses medical marijuana

I've got bad news for you, onatop, marijuana is pretty easy to find already. Prohibition hasn't worked at all. Additionally, in terms of how dangerous it is, I'd rank it somewhere in between ibuprofen and neosporin.

Brownback to lead river float trip

Sounds fun! I'm imagining Huckleberry Finn, but with 100 rich white guys.

Pumpkin patch designs draw outrage from neighbors

Yeah, the pedophile argument is downright hysterical. I think it shows a fundamental misunderstanding of how pedophiles operate and how they pick their targets. A family member or acquaintance are much more likely to go after your kid, as opposed to a stranger at a pumpkin patch.

Bicyclist injured in accident

People who want to ban cars and make bikes mandatory? That's not a real thing. No one believes that. But it's very brave of you to come out in opposition to them. And sure, bike riding is recreational, except when someone is going to school or work, right? Would you rather have that, or have more people to fight with over parking spaces?

Police investigating U.S. Bank robbery on 23rd Street

I think the idea is that, since these guys are usually morons and are caught quickly, you just give them something to get them out the door and let the police do their job. If you wanna place your life on the line for US Bank you certainly can, but they've got insurance for exactly that situation. I don't think anyone is being weak with this sort of response.
