Due to an increasing problem with inappropriate comments being added at the end of online versions of local news stories, comments no longer are being allowed. Too often, individuals were taking advantage of the anonymity possible when adding comments.
We are working out details of a method to allow comments using a system which would require individuals to be identified.
Readers still may send letters for publication on the Opinion page. Submissions are accepted via U.S. mail, email or our Virtual Newsroom. Letters must include the author’s name, address and telephone number to be considered for publication. Phone numbers are not published, but are for purposes of verification only.
This does not infringe on one’s freedom of speech. Readers still are free to comment as they wish on issues of the day. We are under no obligation to publish those comments.
For further explanation of this change in policy, read syndicated columnist Leonard Pitt’s commentary concerning what he refers to as “Internet courage” on page 3D Sunday.
