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.

If you find a post offensive, you can report it as a violation and we'll review it.

If you have any questions about the posts, feel free to call me at 651-437-6153 or e-mail me.

Thanks for reading.
