The Norwalk Reflector has been spammed. These comments have been deleted. Except in the case of spamming, the Reflector will only ever remove the body of a comment and leave some vague boiler plate in its place. In other words, when we take something down because it "violates our terms of service," there will always be a record that we have done so.

The Norwalk Reflector has been spammed.

These comments have been deleted. Except in the case of spamming, the Reflector will only ever remove the body of a comment and leave some vague boiler plate in its place. In other words, when we take something down because it "violates our terms of service," there will always be a record that we have done so.

We will only take down a comment if it is libelous or if it is just too nasty. We want everyone to feel welcome. Deleting comments may not seem welcoming, but it is even less so to allow the bullies to take over the playground.

Libel: a a written or oral defamatory statement or representation that conveys an unjustly unfavorable impression, a statement or representation PUBLISHED WIHTOUT JUST CAUSE and tending to expose another to pumlic contempt.
pretty darn sure i've read "libelous" comments on your site.
if you can't hold yourselves accountable to your terms of service, why bother holding us to it?

Moderating the content of THEIR webpage THEIR way is quite acceptable in my opinion, and every news source has its own political affiliation. If nothing else, they pay for it, and if you don't like what they say, vote with your dollars and don't patronize by going to another news source or start your own newspaper! Quit whining!

Another questio...

Who decides which comments violate your "terms of service". And if some of these disrespectful comments were directed at any of your staff members, would you remove them, or leave them up?

That's interesting. Who gets to decide who the bullies are?

I've seen several comments that violate your terms of service (please do so with a modicum of respect for your neighbors) but they haven't been removed. Why is that?

mt. The counseling center is on Executive Drive. Getting help doesn't have the stigma it use to have. Good luck. Thank for the Go's and Do's

small town scandal is great. This article is almost as amusing as the lady that accused someone of rigging the hot dog contest.

No matter what the paper does, all the miserable people who love to argue and really do not debate are the ones who are critizing. I get sick of hearing people complain about this and that. Call it what you will......political debates.......whatever......that's a load. Go spend time with a lonely elderly neighbor or do something good in your community that will help somebody else for a change. Maybe your lives will have more meaning to it, because all I hear is complaining. And for anyone who wants to challange me.....go ahead......I wouldn't suggest the "Go and Do's" if I didn't already myself. Go and enjoy the beautiful sun and don't be so miserable.

I agree if they want to remove comments made about Sutherland because they feel uncomfortable because of political pressure he might apply, they should have the right to remove them. Also if they write a story and a comment that sheds doubt to their story or effort or lack thereof on part of reflector to get the truth, they should be able to take the comments off. If they want to say its because of technical difficulties or if they want to say its a violation, or even if the view is an opposing view of their political contingents, they should be able to remove the comments. The Reflector is being spammed...the readers are being scammed. (wasn't that clever)
