It's simple and painless to decry online toxicity; it's harder and more important to do something about it. We at The Huffington Post have chosen to take an affirmative step by verifying the identities of new commenter accounts. We won't eliminate every last note of negativity and nastiness on the site, but we believe this change will offer the guarantee of a gut check. Our hope is that this decision will lead to more of the robust conversations that we love having on HuffPost, and with that end in mind, we invite you to leave your comments below.
