To the Editor:
Do you read your blogs? Do you screen comments for racist, defammatory and sladerous comments? Do you care that there are blog comments on your website that could cause you to be considered duplicitous in spreading untrue, uncorroborated and potentially legally actionable comments by readers? Your distribution of such comments should be investigated by your legal staff to see if you are opening yourself to potentially being held accountable for aligning yourself with the content of the comments.
I read that your staff screens comments and will not print racist and inflammatory comments, but you do. You allow people to spout off at will saying anything they want, naming names, telling lies, hurting others with defammatory statements. Who holds you accountable for these actions?

Maybe you should find something else to do with your time. These boards are a way for people to vent. Were you the kid in class that use to tattle? Just like TV or the radio, if you don't like what's on, turn the channel.

There is however, a matter of blogging manners.
Character assassination is not of good breeding.
Discipline on the net is a learned trait. However a the expense of one's person, could be toned down quite a bit. YES?
You were corrected as a child, right?
Well, adults can be corrected as well.
It just takes good judgement what to say on the posts. Simple.
