anonymous blog

A blog that does not identify the blogger. Such blogs are used to publish opinions about politics, celebrities, an industry or targeted companies. Anonymous blogs are very controversial in the U.S., as many feel they are protected under the First Amendment; however, others believe that anyone defaming another should be held liable. See blog.
