>>6115 as the other poster said, many boards have functioned fine without flags or ids. if you're truly hear for discussion, you'll get used to it. if you're here to shitpost memes and /pol/ drivel then you have a problem
>>6290 >>6159 Sorry, I don't quite understand what ID's have to do with memes and shit? I don't even post on /pol/. I just think ID's make threads easier to follow, and it exactly prevents /pol/ drivel.
>>6354 IDs are made to identify one user correct? This is only really useful in discussions where it's a scoring contest, where people are trying to 'win' an argument rather than discuss and exchange viewpoints.
>>6598 Well discussions ARE a contest in a way. People present arguments and one with best arguments wins. It's easier to follow discussions with ID's. It's easier to ignore shitposters. What's your problem?
While I believe that ID's can be useful in certain circumstances for the identification and ignoring of particular trolls, I do agree that the fully anonymous nature without them does generally lead to less of an overall dick waving contest and better discussion. Pros and cons, really.
>>6773 You're still anonymous though. No one can draw conclusions from you ID. I get no flags, but I really don't understand what's the problem with ID besides ''it would make discussion competitive''.
>>6427 It's only a few people asking for them. The polls we had in Hiro's thread showed that the majority was against them.
Personally, I'm against IDs. 100% anonymous posting makes it easier to look at the arguments, rather than at the people making them. If you really want to samefag, there are ways to circumvent IDs. If you want to be identified, you can use a tripcode. Therefore, IDs don't really accomplish much, except for making discussions get more personal and competitive.
