It’s a new day online

March 28, 2011
Editorial by the Adirondack Daily Enterprise: Publisher Catherine Moore, Managing Editor Peter Crowley

On May 18, 2009, we suggested getting rid of or limiting Web comments on our stories online, but readers convinced us we should keep them. We received a huge response in support of the comments and almost none against them, even after we ran a follow-up editorial specifically soliciting those against the comments. So even though the comments caused problems - people were slandered, falsehoods were spread, name calling was rampant, vulgarity was common, anger became the norm, and respect became uncommon - we kept this service.
