Idiots ruined your right to comment on Saratoga Springs fatal hit-and-run
A few heartless jerks whose repeated comments were over the line of civil discourse. Freedom of speech is a Constitutional guarantee from government intervention in the working of the press. It does not require that every monkey who can type be given a soapbox through their local media company. (Not sure why I'm picking on monkeys.)
We do our best at The Saratogian to keep up with the reported abuse, which come as e-mail alerts. But it was too much to keep up with the unreasonable, abusive nastiness that had to be removed, one stupid comment at a time.
So the privilege is gone.
I appreciate the frustration of those of you who have something constructive to say. Not so much for people like firstname.lastname@example.org who responded to the removal of the comments with the admonition to "open up you d-bags" and "you suck." Thanks. Your opinion means a lot to me. Not.
