Good point, fo5 ... I fully agree that someone dealing with the public such as you, or a doctor or anyone else whose opinion might adversely affect their business or clients cannot (nor should be forced to) ID themselves online on sensitive issues simply because they could hurt their business and therefore wouldn't comment. Okay ... I'm changing my opinion on this issue (see? I can do that when sensible arguments are heard. Too bad that never happens in the AGW debate....heh heh!) Grin.
Meant to say "what if's" .... this darn Kindle Fire HDX thingie keeps changing my words .... have to watch it like a hawk.
I see a lot of "what it's" popping up here (facebook, other social media, etc.) but I was applauding this letter only in regards to this one, comparatively- small town' s newspaper site. In my view, if you are not prepared to put your true name on an online-posted response to a printed/published letter-writer, the U-B shouldn't post it. I would welcome that change to U-B policy.
Wwguy7: The civility of the above posting is amazing (compared to so many seen in this forum). My hat is off ... May it become a pattern here (wishful thinking, I know....)
First time you ever made me chuckle, paco1234. That last sentence was a doozie. And, as with fatherof5, I agree with you today. Is there a full moon this week or something? I'm certainly not Catholic nor have a lot of gay friends or relatives (that I know of, at least) ... but my best old Marine buddy from the sixties does have four beautiful married daughters and one fine son -- who happens to be gay.
For once we agree, fatherof5 .... the writer used the old Pascal's Wager concept .... not something any true believer should ever employ, in my opinion. In any event, since most (if not all) gay persons are born that way, how could religious tenets -- be they Christian, Jewish, Muslim or whatever -- consider being gay as sinful? That doesn't compute.
Exactly, PearlY ... micromanaging our health insurance or stealing our taxes in a scam called global warming/climate change. Well said.
Ignore downhill's typical drive-by shots, Mr. Filan .... they always go wild and miss.
Bravo! As you've noted, Mr. Calzaretta, insults abound online like you find in most all website comments sections when people who are anonymous feel free to say things to others that they wouldn't dare sign with their true name, much less say to their face. You need only read a few political comments to see what I mean. It would indeed be nice to see the U-B adopt the policy that you suggest.
Spot on, DocDoc. In fact the three core values of the local Tea Party (of which I'm not a member but support them) are: Fiscal Responsibility, Limited Government and a Free Market Economy. These are traditional American values. In other words, three things which Progressives abhor.
