Editor's Note: You may comment on this story using your Facebook log-in. We are testing this new commenting system on selected articles in an effort to hold people more accountable for their comments. You may still comment on most other stories using your JSOnline user account.A few initial thoughts regarding this new policy:
- What if you don't have a Facebook account? Aren't they denying those people a chance?
- Anonymity is a long cherished tradition that was used by some of the earliest leaders of this country.
- It doesn't seem to be doing much in keeping the vitriol down.
- I bet Darlene Wink et alia wishes they had this a long time ago. They might have avoided a lot of trouble.
The paper already knows what they need to do if they want to improve the atmosphere of their comment sections, but they are simply too cheap and miserly to have a person monitoring the comments coming in.
