Notice of upcoming change to anonymous commenting

Ken Proudman - view Arbitrator profile
   Edmonton, Alberta

In a couple of weeks, anonymous posts will show whether the commenter is in Calgary Region, Edmonton Region, Red Deer Region, or "Other". Thank you to everyone who responded when I sought feedback a few months ago.

This change will also apply to past posts, in order to keep the website's code a bit simpler.

Calgary Region will include Airdrie, Okotoks, Chestermere, and High River. Edmonton Region will include Sherwood Park, Beaumont, Nisku, Leduc, Devon, Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, St. Albert, Morinville, and Fort Sask. Red Deer Region will include Sylvan Lake, Lacombe, Blackfalds, and Innisfail.

I chose "Other" rather than listing municipalities not to minimize lawyers in smaller centers, but to protect their anonymity. I started out in Westlock, so I can see how it would have been very easy to identify me as the anonymous family law lawyer in Westlock were I still practicing there.

This change is a response to the issue of people asking questions for which the answer depends on their location, but not listing their location. By the time they respond with their location, potential responders have already seen their post in the email notifications and likely won't check back again.

If you're concerned about this change at all, please contact me, you can even leave an anonymous comment in this thread if you'd like.
