The Reading Eagle should be happy that anyone cares enough to comment. If they want commenters to be identified, nobody will bother.

No loss.

The dead tree media is on borrowed time anyway.

not sure how I could boycott the eagle.. I don't buy the dead-tree edition as it is...

Anyway, I just wrote Dietz a letter, asked him to come up with a new and improved comments system *FAST* because let's face it... the context provided by commenters are often more informative than the articles in the first place.

When you get down to it, the problem isn't that the eagle is a bad paper... the problem is that Reading is a one-paper town.

Lost interest in the Reading Eagle when they gutted the business section, stopped printing stock prices, forced me to the internet, at which point why did I need dead trees on my doorstep.....

It’s stupid that a few idiots ruined the comments for everyone else. The only thing I will miss about the comments section is some of the “good” insider information the Reading Eagle reporters lacked. All in all, removing the comments section was probably best for the paper. I know a couple people that declined a story just because they didn’t want some unknown person berating them even if the story was positive.
