• Thanks for addressing the point, Chris. As i said, I recall only 2 of the posts I read. Neither was of a particular "hot"┬áin my mind, but pointed none the less. Apparently the posts got uglier, or the censors tolerance much lower than mine.
    But ALL of the comments were DELETED!? HOLY COW! Was there no single comment in line with your guidelines? GEEZ!
    I would watch the use of your delete button, though. It could succeed in killing your forums.

  • Ms. Castillo: I read three early posts. One questioned the legality of the imigration status of some family members since the interview was in spanish. Another questioned who was paying for the delivery costs of either child. The third doesn't come to mind.
    If you did not delete these comments, who did? The VicAd has taken a much more agressive censorship policy of late. I had one comment deleted regarding where I took issue with a hispanic posters constant "putting down" of the hispanic culture of our area. Are race topics now considered taboo by the VicAd. If so, I'd encourage your own staff to follow the same guidelines and avoid such potential "hot button" topics.
    And render both the paper and these forums irrelevant.

  • bighorn - I was still deep in slumber when that happened - I'm not an early morning person at all, :)... but that thread was locked and comments deleted because of the unsubstantiated facts and personal attacks posted against the subjects of the article. Also, by the time it was locked, it was more than three comments. We have a lot of early risers!

  • CJ: I'd be interested to know why 3 comments on todays lead story "Mother and Daughter......." were both deleted and then the comment board closed. I read the comments early this morning, then noted their absence a couple of hours later. Now the section is closed. An explanation would be appreciated.

  • Oh snap! I got lazy and didn't post a fifth one and forgot to edit my post, haha. I'll be sure to get five next week. Thanks for letting me know!

    I really like the idea of that wand. It would go well with my sequined Dollywood jacket.
