Ethic of transparency catches on

Father Jake reflects on the comment policy at Episcopal Café:

I initially was uncomfortable with this policy, but after giving it some thought, I’ve come to see the wisdom in it.

If our contributions to the conversation are to be of value, an ethic of transparency, of honesty, needs to be upheld.

No, I’m not going to adopt this policy at Jake’s place. As one who has used a nom de plume for many years, I understand the need some folks have to protect their privacy. However, I am encouraging those who are comfortable doing so to begin using their real names.

To launch this effort towards more tranparency, it seems appropriate to begin with myself.
