personally I tend to think that charging people for their identity works - it certainly does with communities of thousands. The problem arises when the community size reaches millions and the same functionality is being offered for free.

My viewpoint is based on cix which offered a large uk based discussion forum pre widespread internet (its still going too). The fact people generally had to pay to access it kept the number of fake trolls very low and people who tried to pay for a second account quickly got identified by their writing style. There were and are annoying people on there but thats their online persona.

There are many changes now - the number of online users and the move to person centred discussion over subject centred. Things will not return to the way they were, but i do believe verified identities would help in some communities.

More will follow when i have time to post

Miscellaneous. Eclectic. Random. Perhaps markedly literate, or at least suffering from the compulsion to read any text that presents itself, including cereal boxes.
