They are being dubbed as the 'Nym Wars" - the online community is fiercely debating the relevance and need for allowing users to remain anonymous or use pseudonyms. These are the statements that will be debated:
- Asking users for real names is the only way to promote civil discourse.
- People cannot afford to live under pseudonyms as the internet becomes integrated with various aspects of everyday life.
- Social media will not act as a catalyst for social change if it does not offer a certain level of anonymity.

We welcome all points of view, as long as they are within the bounds of civil discourse. We will edit for length and clarity, to accommodate as many voices as possible.
