Letter: Keep Online Haters Out

On behalf of the many Democrats I know, I thank you for your recent decision to exclude from participation on your blog those few participants who use hateful, inflammatory language. Such trash-talk serves no purpose other than to degrade the civil standards of our community and perhaps give license to other disturbed folks to do the same. We are grateful for your taking a principled stand and saying no to these hate-filled people. Your action is especially appropriate and, I am sure, applauded by many others beyond us Democrats, as this is the community which originated the Human Rights Task Force/Chairwoman Paula Neils of the Kootenai County Democrats, letter to the editor, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Have you noticed an improvement in the dialogue at the Coeur d'Alene Press Online site since Editor Mike Patrick cracked down on troublemakers?
