The Admin of this blog has removed the flames and personal attacks of last Friday.
We will continue to monitor comments. We intend this blog to be a place for information- and opinion-sharing, and for the exchange of constructive criticism.
The trolls haven't reappeared so far; there don't seem to have been any further instances of flaming.
But the real test will come tomorrow and especially late this week: If our Web site traffic patterns are any guide, hits and comments trough over the weekend, increase during the week and then spike on Thursdays and Fridays (when most copies of our paper are picked up).
So be careful out there and behave yourselves.
