The Norwalk Reflector is updating its online comment policy. Any future comments using the seven words prohibited by the FCC, or any Internet-savvy variation thereof, will be automatically deleted, regardless of content. The previous standard — that all libelous or overtly threatening comments will be removed — also still stands.
We want to provide a forum for vigorous debate, but we also want everyone to feel welcome. It is a difficult balance to strike and one we are still working towards.
