Why are People Allowed to Post Anonymously?

Aside from a desire to respect everyone's right to maintain their privacy, we are aware that some types of issues can be very sensitive. There are instances when a reporter would like to remain anonymous out of a concern for potential retribution or other negative consequences. For example, in an issue where a neighbor reported drug deals happening in a particular neighborhood and that report led ultimately to a number of arrests, it is understandable that the reporter would choose to remain anonymous.

That said, since SeeClickFix believes in the power of accountability and transparency. We encourage you to strongly consider using your own name. 

One thing that is definitely not allowed is impersonating other people. If we suspect any material is written impersonating another, we reserve the right to remove it.
