MPS teacher Diane Hardy nails it in her community column in the Journal Sentinel today:
“The greatest shame in media coverage today is that anonymous online comments are allowed. The open contempt, rage and racism in reader comments do not contribute to the dialogue of what ails our community.
If commenters had to give their real names and hometowns, I doubt they would be so quick to show such hatred. Imagine if their families, co-workers, bosses and neighbors could see the real them.
When I receive e-mail comments, the nastier they are, the less likely the writer is to sign his or her name. It is simple cowardice.”
