No more online comments

March 31, 2013

I am delighted that the Observer-Reporter has temporarily eliminated the online comments that follow every article on its website.

The concept is nice in the abstract, but in reality the comments turned into nasty exchanges between anonymous keyboard commandos. People who actually write letters to the editor should be commended for their opinions and courage to affix a name to their work. You never have to agree with anyone or anything, but have the decency to comment with respect and decorum. I hope the paper permanently deletes this ridiculous forum for anonymous rock throwers to reaffirm their masculinity by launching personal attacks.
