Stop violence win the Internet – away with anonymity and non-liability

For fairness and justice on the Internet!

In life, we have a personal ID, a registered address, a passport number, a social security number, etc. In the Internet, (we think) we are anonymous and free of responsibility. So more and more succumb to the epidemic of spreading nonsense and attacking others.

Every day I am confronted with people and organisations desperate, helpless and hopeless when a misguided furious mob goes after them. People forget all restraint and rules of decency and law. Violence spreads. It keeps getting worse.

This causes damage to fellow humans and to society. And it is infecting real life behaviour.

This must end. It is time to act.

It would be good to start an initiative or petition of the well-meaning. What do you think?
