[stextbox id=”custom”]The observer has a growing concern with fans who hide behind monikers or pseudonyms while making deeply personal attacks on coaches,  or people on the athletic staff or associated with the University of Louisville. The attacks often having nothing to do with athletics, and the person casting aspersions hides behind his or her anonymity. Without any accountability.

The problem is not a unique local challenge, of course. The Internet can be a great communications tool but, unfortunately, it is being used in a destructive way by some. Fan message boards are a modern wonder but they also come with considerable risk to personal reputations. A time is coming when that will have to be fixed. [/stextbox]
