I seem to have hit a nerve in a recent post about anonymous notes for our Cheers & Jeers section on our Opinion page.
A few readers have called in with questions about how it works. One reader told me there were many times when he had wanted to send in a letter, but just didn't feel comfortable about signing it.
I feel that since we allow online readers to post comments somewhat anonymously - they do have to register and verify their registration with a valid email address - that I would extend the same courtesy to our print readers who may want to express themselves but don't wish to do so because of fear of retaliation or ridicule.
So, if you have an urge to vent about something, or just want to offer praise, visit our Virtual Newsroom at nvdaily.com/virtual. Click on Cheers & Jeers to upload your missive. You will have to fill out your contact information, but your identification will not be printed. You also can email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with Cheers & Jeers on the subject line.
Cheers & Jeers will be edited and must be 100 words or less, must not contain website addresses or personal attacks.
