Am I the only one who believes that some posters are getting too off-topic and turning SwampBubbles into a place for personal attacks? I am fairly new to this, but some of the postings this past week have been vulgar, with name-calling, profanity, and childish comments. I can choose whether I want to read vulgar books or watch R-rated movies, but I come to SwampBubbles to learn more about the people and the issues of Toledo, not to have to drag my eyes through murky posts in order to find responses to the original topic.
Also, am I wrong in expecting my username to be anonymous, unless I wish to disclose it? I have been shocked to see identities exposed by people responding to posts. Even if you and I have had conversations about blogging here, this is an extremely public venue, and everyone should have the right to keep his/her personal information just that - personal and private.
