I do believe that the Hartford Courant should require complete, correct & legally verifiable names for anyone who is quoted in a story, writes a letter of opinion or who blogs. I believe that this information should be retained by the Hartford Courant so that if there is libel or slander the appropriate action can be taken. I do NOT feel that it should require that the information be published and as previously pointed out our court system shares and supports my feelings.
PS Would any of you pro-name sharers have a suggestion on how to comfort my 5yr old son who was with me when I was "confronted" in public today by someone who believes that if the election doesn't go "my" way I should be prepared to stand in the welfare lines?
Julie Ann,
Was this confronting person speaking to you about the forum here and your posting ?
I'll be calling the courant again.
You can also call the courant and just dial O.
They will ask If you put a red flag on the post too.
I have to ask the courant about the copy and paste back on a post that was deleted.
I don't think you can do this but I'm not 100 percent sure.
I'm looking through the policies and terms.

I do not think the person was reacting to one specific post. I didn't really ask any questions at the time :)
The gentleman(?) seems to believe that because I have questioned someone who may become the "boss" of our household's primary wage earner that they may lose their job. I am not overly concerned - I do not believe that this person was representing the candidate concerned and I do believe that all the candidates are able to recognize that we all have the freedom to express our political opinions without fear of retribution from our employers.
I am upset that this happened in front of my son who is old enough to pay attention to what is said around him but too young to realize that sometimes grown-ups don't know what they are talking about. I welcome discussion about this election or anything that involves our town especially from people who don't share my views - often this is the best way to gain new insights and gather more facts - however, I would prefer to have a discussion not to be threatened.

O'Neil DOES reside in Chester and IS a republican on the STATE level. That doesn't mean he did anything, but he did. Julie, you are naive and have no idea what your talking about, so please stop while you are ahead. You have no idea who the sources of information are, (nor should any of you), or why they need to remain unidentified to the mainstream. There is an investigation, the truth will come out and those of us that know it, will know there is such a thing as justice. And Julie, local cops can see a car in the dark when they want to. PERIOD
