Reader feedback: Let the victims remain anonymous

Re: Spies on the net, Flash News Briefs, November 11

It would be very interesting to find out the procedures of the communists during those years. However, whoever is in charge of releasing these files should just give the information about those years and the methods used, without divulging people's names.

What would be gained by further embarrassing people who had enough to live with and suffer during those terrible years? A general accounting should be enough for the public to see what went on and how during that era.

Many people would sooner forget that period of their lives, rather than open up old wounds and memories.
