    What is this “loser in his moma’s basement” mess?!? As Sara pointed out, it is ppl of all walks of life that are making these rude, offensive, and threatening comments. This is why I have avoided social media more than your a average person. I have kept that to very minimal in my life, but I always hear about the horror stories through family and friends. That said, we can give this idea a try for sure!

    They keep saying ..."Loser's and Mother's Basement"....Clearly they havent followed the Republican party these past 5 years...Or even the Former President of the United States!...Come on now...The former President said some of the most vile things on national tv, is one of the nastiest human beings walking and he still got Half of America voting for him to keep his job...This I.D. is not going to do much but scare us even more. I mean look what happened when they revealed the names of the Rioters at the Capital...Absolutely ...Nothing!...They are politicians, doctors, lawyers, and the like!...The Loser in his mother's basement is minding his own business playing nintendo...Yall need to stop with this nonsense!

    NO!! It's NOT SAFE to put your personal info on the internet for every stalker, harasser, violent nut and crook to see. If some anonymous troll is bothering you, report and block them, but NEVER let them know who you are.

  15. wolfman02

    This is misguided. I've had people who DID use their real name, occupation, photo, etc, stalk and send me DEATH THREATS, even though I never said a darn thing disrespectful to them. And the only thing that made me worry-free was that I was using a screen name, and they didn't have a clue who I was. Now, you can say, "Ah, but, see, now we know who they are!" WHO CARES????!! If they'd been able to find and attack me because I had used my real name, it'd be TOO LATE!!

  16. wolfman02

    NO, NO, NO! WRONG! What ever happened to the days when we sensibly said, "DON'T put your PERSONAL INFORMATION on the internet"?? It's NOT a safe place. If someone wants to stalk or harass you or worse, they'll have your real identity!! It's much safer to use screen names. If anyone is bothering you? BLOCK THEM! Report them! The social media company will have better info on who they are or can get law enforcement involved. But don't let dangerous people know who YOU are! That's STUPID!

    I agree with this panel: 100%. I just think it really sucks b/c I am actually a lover of Twitter. That is the ONE social media platform I have NOT left. F&*k Facebot and f&*k Instagoon, Twitter actually does allow you to interact with subjects, people, policies, platforms that you normally might not be able to, connect with causes and personalities that matter to you, and can be a very enjoyable place to even have a disagreement. But these bottom-feeders, these hidden losers who speak and run and have zero intellect or decency can cause you to want to go HAM.

    Voting is sacred. Social media was invented no more than 20 (some) years ago. “Freedom of speech…but”. There is no “but”. It’s not freedom of speech if everything you say can be held against you at an individual level. If you’re running for office and you have an extremely bitter post, then if people want to expose that then they can. But even then it’s a post. It’s speech. It’s freedom. Accountability? So we need accountability for social media but not for voting? These people are insane. They have no idea. You’re responsible for your speech to the extent of the attention you drawl to yourself. The more popular you are, the more people will criticize your everyday actions. That’s the natural effect of being a celebrity of any kind. Normal everyday people shouldn’t be legally required to be censored by the government, and neither should celebrities or anyone else for that matter. The government can censor itself per the interests of the people it represents. If a celebrity is canceled it’s because the masses have a problem with what they said or did. Individuals don’t have to worry about being canceled by the masses and they shouldn’t be forced to. Celebrity or not, if you are a legal citizen of the U.S., you are an American, and the integrity of elections should be backed by voter ID. Social media is not a country. Social media is used by people all over the world. The integrity of social media doesn’t depend on the identity of its users. A vote in an election does.

    This is a critical thinking issue: For example, we can be verified users with Google. However, when we post, we can change our display name and use a meme for a pic. We still have a real Google account with our real first and last name yet no one will see that. What The View hosts are saying (but not clearly) is that we should have to use our real first and last name and real picture when posting. Google, Facebook, and Twitter have our real information but when posting, no one else can see it.
