I can go either way on sengid editorials. The argument against signing them is that they truly represent the position of the newspaper, not necessarily of the person writing it. At smaller papers where I've worked, the editorial position is a rough consensus among the editor, the publisher and maybe a few other people. At larger papers, it may be the position of the editorial board. I've written plenty of editorials, and though I've never written one I disagreed with entirely, I've written many that would have come out quite different in terms of nuance and style if I weren't writing on behalf of a group. I wouldn't have wanted my name on it.
