If they are blatantly racist or xenophobic, then yes of course they should be removed. But I don't think questions or posts that mention race or ethnicity in a non offensive way should be banned. That's way to "big brother" like for me and would just further the whole agenda of political correctness in my opinion - by banning any subject that could potentially hurt the precious little feelings of sensitive people.
Anons do make up a good portion of the trolls here though which is why I believe that option should just be limited to the relationship and sex topics (because of the intimate nature of those topics), and eliminated everywhere else on the website. I don't know if that's ever going to happen, but I can hope. I don't see a need for it anywhere else.
When anonymous people block your account, you can actually continue to post on their question unless they reveal themselves by going public. And they should know that, because when you go anon it actually reminds you that blocked users can comment on your question or answer.
Anonimity would allow people to speak thier mind freely, however this is not always a good thing, but if i would know Black people and they knew me on this site then i would deff 100% go anon on a topic about race But since i dont know anyone on this site i dont bother
But there are also (mainly younger members) that never made thier own opinion and probably copy everything they seen on the (social) media Perhaps it would be a better idea instead of removing anon to give it the option for people above the age of X, or people with at least "gag level X"
Becuase these newer members without thier own opinion will quickly find out this isn't the best place for them and leave the site before reaching level 3
But everywhere people can post freely and anonymous you'll have toxic people who will abuse the system to grow hate, but it also allows scared/suppressed people to give thier opinion without concequences for them
I would much rather see a age/level requirement then anon removed since it does allow intresting opinions from people who fear/are ashamed of thier opinion/story
Very tough call - I would not be a fan of blanket bans because genuine questions get lost in the mix - I know manpower is the issue but I still think the solution is having the feed permanently staffed by a member of admin who vets questions before they go live - After a while the "Anons" will tire of the questions not getting through and the whole site improves.
