I applaud your decision to move away from anonymous commenting on your website.

I do not use Facebook due to concerns over its lack of security but as you say, I can use more old-fashioned means of contacting you.

Will you now take the next step and actually pay attention to the accuracy of the “facts” presented?  For example, in the same issue as you announce your new enlightened policy, you have a letter by Tim Grey with what I would call “inaccurate facts.”

Colwood does not have a $10 million deficit. Solar Colwood does not cost Colwood residents $458,000. Because of new bylaw changes, the majority of Colwood residents will pay far less for sewers than was previously estimated.

Simply presenting the same garbage over a signature does not improve things.
