The Anonymous Remarks

I find often in the comment section on-line news articles (on yahoo, aol, msn, etc) that people will a lot of times provide inappropriate remarks, sometimes in my opinion really horrid stuff. For example on an article about the incident on Greyhound on just first page of comments I read people making jokes about the crime, racial slurs towards the accused because he was Chinese, towards the victim because he was a carnival worker (assumed by the majority of the commenter's to be a redneck). 95% of time the comments are anonymous.
