Article comments are back on
In 2008, three cases in a short amount of time prompted me to turn off article comments and review each comment before it went live on the Star Gazette's Web site. Those three cases? A death threat, the posting of an innocent victim's name and a profanity-filled tirade. But we're willing to give the comments another shot.
We turned them back on today. We'll have them turned on for every story.
Should an offensive post appear, I will remove it.
