SandBoxBlogs: KKCO 11 News "Family of slain victim asks that suspects not be stereotyped "

The problem is not the commentators.

The problem is the website.

It's called an off button and every comment able website has one.

Moderation is the key, but it does take a human being to implement the policy and follow up on it.

KKCO should take a good look at what they wish to be known for. 

From the looks of things in their hub they have inherited all that made the PI and Sentinel hubs become such a discredit to the communities they served.  Hopefully, they will take the constructive criticism and do the opposite of what both of those newspapers did in censoring and banning. Instead, make the effort and build a commentary community.

Moderation doesn't curb or cancel free speech abilities. Quite the contrary, actuallly.  When people know they can speak up with true anonymity and in a forum that engages in dialog; those people who gave up on the micro-blogging communities return.

Our hearts go out to the family and loved ones of Abel Roper.
