Hardly does a day pass when we don’t surf online, which seems to be an integral part of the modern way of living. Beneficial as it is, the widespread use of Internet has posed many a problem. To tackle those problems, network real-name system is put forward as a potential solution.
People in favor of network real-name system maintain that if one has to register his real name before he logs on to the Internet forum or post a remark, it is definite that he will be more prudent. Thus, many negative consequences can be avoided. On the contrary, others oppose to this notion, arguing that it will restrain people from revealing their opinions, for their being afraid of possible troubles in real life.
As far as I’m concerned, network real-name system only addresses the symptoms, not the causes. Deprived of anonymity, Internet will lose its inborn attractiveness and openness and therefore ceases to be as lively as it is now. Just as one will never stop eating for fear of choking, online activities should remain anonymous.
