It’s time to Take the Anonymous out of ACBPosted by anonymous 04/02/2011 11:13 PM | Last Reply 04/05/2011 02:54 PMMy name is Haley Winters, and I am taking the “Anonymous” out of ACB.

As a freshman at USC and a member of the Greek community, I’ve spent the last seven months viewing ACB with a combination of amusement and disgust. Although I’ve never posted, I’ll admit to checking up on it on a semi-regular basis—a guilty pleasure, if you will.

Over the last few months, however, I’ve been harboring a growing horror for the contents of this website. The rampant racism, sexism, homophobia, prejudice, and just sheer ignorance displayed on this website is abominable, not to mention the practice of singling out and publicly demeaning individuals for their looks, affiliations, or personal affairs. CollegeACB is not a gossip site—it is a forum for slander, for public humiliation, and for cowardice.

I’ve decided I can no longer stand by anonymously and watch as the degrading contents of this website become a focal point of the USC social experience. By remaining anonymous, we are fostering a community of hatred at USC. By standing by, we are allowing this practice of anonymous terror to become commonplace. By not speaking up, we are validating the cruelty of ACB. We are saying that this is okay.

I’m writing this message to declare, as an identifiable and named person, that I am not okay with the message that this website sends. I ask now that anybody who feels the same way please reply below with the statement, “My name is ___________ , and I am taking the “Anonymous” out of CollegeACB.” I’d also ask that you make this your Facebook status to attest to your rejection of anonymity.

This is not a petition; I have no demands for the removal of the site or even for the posters to be found accountable for their hateful messages. I understand that freedom of speech allows expression in all its forms. This is simply a call to all those who feel as I do—that the contents of this website are unacceptable, and I do not support it. If we collect as many signatures as possible, then we send a message to anyone who has ever been singled out or attacked on CollegeACB, to let them know: we do not condone this. We do not accept this. We are willing to stand up—to stand up with our real names, without hiding behind the safety of anonymity—and tell you, publicly, that we don’t support the slander and the hatred on this website. This is not the USC community that we want to be a part of. We reject the doctrines of CollegeACB.

Thank you,

Posted by anonymous 04/05/2011 12:55 AMThe things said here will be thought and said elsewhere if the site is no longer anonymous. Honestly, as long as I don’t have a whole month long thread about me, I’d rather know what people are saying about me behind my back than be completely in the dark about it.reply 80 votesvote up report
