Anonymity makes us dumb.

You, like most everyone else, need to continue to tackle communication barriers and provide your work force with a voice. What you don't need is more chatter.

Anonymity destroys quality dialogue.

Before you press send on that email, you pause and consider the audience. The same is true before publishing to your blog or changing that entry in the wiki. When the goal is to foster positive working relationships through effective communication and knowledge sharing, anonymity will destroy the conversation before it has a chance to start.

On a closed, non-anonymous site I get to use, I'm noticing that the quality of comments continues to increase. I don't think people are dumb. I think ease of use combined with anonymity and vanity just makes them seem that way. -Seth Godin

Give everyone a voice. Just make sure it's connected to their identity.
