I must admit to a certain level of angst when it comes to one of our more popular online features — the comments at the end of most Optic stories posted on our website.
I’m torn between a deep-seated belief in the people’s right to free speech and my journalistic upbringing that newspapers should act responsibly in their use of the “free press” provision also in the First Amendment. Allowing anonymous writers to post belligerent and destructive comments on the Optic’s website just doesn’t sit well with me.
