Journal-World websites to require commenters to identify themselves

You should consider more robust Facebook privacy settings if you plan on making contributions to LJW in the future. Just sayin'.

Journal-World websites to require commenters to identify themselves

"If the JW wants me to provide them with my real name and contact information linked to my user name, I have no issue with that."

I too would be more in favor of this option, and would continue to interact with the LJW websites. For what it is, the level of "extreme speech, insults, name-calling, misleading statements and other behavior that is made possible and even encouraged by anonymity" is quite low here compared to hundreds of other internet platforms.

I dare anyone to take the comments of any five mildly popular videos on youtube, and feel comfortable reading the contents verbatim to their grandmother.

Journal-World websites to require commenters to identify themselves

Terrible mistake, LJW. I, among many others will no longer engage with your online services following this move. Many of us do not wish to jeopardize our professional lives, nor the safety of our families by using our real names.

If troublesome posters are the real issue here, may I suggest hiring additional moderators and reviewing the guidelines on when to take action? Uprooting an entire online community (albeit dysfunctional) for a few bad apples is perhaps more extreme than some of the viewpoints being voiced.

Oh well, you've made your decision and so have I. I do not wish to become another Emma Sullivan, David Guth, or any of the millions of people who have lost job opportunities or entire careers for the personal opinions they made on the internet.

Expect this to be your last story with the comments exceeding the century mark for a long time.

Cheers!

A new Kansas River trail and city nature area near Burcham Park may be in the works

"Sesquicentennial Point is below the Clinton Lake Dam. Its entrance is off of Eeast 902 Road, across the street from the city's off-leash dog park."

Hey Chad, you may wish to revise this portion of the article. Thanks for the information, cheers!

KU cancels Band Day parade because of early football game kickoff

They cancelled for logistical reasons. Splitting up a rehearsal all over town and in places without the facilities to accommodate several thousand band kids would not be helping the situation. Like I mentioned above, decisions like this do not come easily and without deep consideration of all feasible options. It is still very unfortunate, and I hope for tradition's sake it is able to pick back up next year.

Except KU doesn't get a word in on when to set the game time, that's up to whatever network is carrying the game. Take it up with them instead. Trust me, decisions like this do not come lightly.

You could also wait just two more weeks and experience the Homecoming parade return to Downtown.

EDIT: In response to a *now* disappeared post.

Abortion group sees special session as opportunity

You obviously didn't follow the link I provided. Roeder was only a convenient example as his was a recent high profile case that every one should be familiar with. Also, he was found competent to stand trial, so he wasn't crazy by definition of the law. Unless you consider religious zealotry that leads to murder insane.

Let's try again.
