In today's newspapers, where real reporting is nonexistent, you often find out more information in the comment section. Of course, you have to use your own judgment as to truth or fiction, but don't we do that in life, anyway?
But, if a paper is going to allow comments, I don't believe they should be censored. In my humble opinion.

I'm a US News editor. Sometimes I get a "gotcha" posting, from a reader, acusing me of deliberately not posting a story. I go and look at it, and if it is true, and relevant, I always post it.

I truly enjoy both agreeing and disagreeing with the TOPIX readers.
Some are dull idealogues, some are predjudiced pigs, but many are actually thinkers. It is a treat to correspond with them.
