If those who vent often would remain civil and work through matters instead of name calling, making threats and several other forms of anonymous communication that I have seen here, we would not need to identify ourselves. It's called being an adult. Hiding behind a user name and making irrational comments or threats, is not, that is childish and immature. Rules are made for those who break the rules, not for those who follow them.
I have always been an advocate of owning up to what you say; don't have anything nice to say, don't say it at all. I feel fortunate to be able to come to a newspaper close to home and be able to voice my opinion using my real name, feel fortunate you have this ability for free.
I have a sneaky suspicion which paper Mr. Stanford is talking about when he says,
"I analyzed the policy’s impacts in response to an inquiry from an editor at another newspaper whose site still allows anonymous comments. The editor is growing weary of policing anonymous posts and debating anonymous individuals who get upset when their comments are deleted. He’s researching alternative approaches and wanted to know how we were doing."
I believe this may be our very own local newspaper here in Craig, the Craig Daily Press, that decided to start charging for its online content, including the online forum. You think you have lost commentors; we go days and days between posts because you cannot comment on anything without paying for it. I would rather go to a forum where you have to use your real name, for free, than pay to speak my mind....with my name or anonymously. If I am wrong, my bad, however it would not surprise me if it was the CDP making another move to promote their "product".
I applaud the Pilot and Today for taking the right steps and making those commenting use their real names, it is only the right thing to do. I have followed this paper for many years and have been on the forum off and on - there were some mean, vicious, high and mighty people commenting on here. I had enough and decided it was not worth it yet I often wonder how many other commentors were lost in that same manner.
Hiding behind an anonymous user name and spewing forth some of the nasty comments I have seen here over the years is, well, I can't say it here, but it has to do with chickens.
In my heyday of skiing, almost all of those were where I and my buddies hung out, off the beaten path and away from the out of control tourists. Land of the little people and the closet were all time favorites. Cool article, brought back many happy memories, one almost tragic one, and a yearning to get back into the sport. This time though, one board instead of two.
If they didn't want my left arm to do it.......
Lol, just don't bang the bump on the back of your head, messes everything up.
Sweet. Done, and thank you for that tip, sorry I didn't catch on the first time. Computers are as confusing to me as say, surgical procedure is to you. Ever have any thoughts or questions about it, I owe you one.
Have a great day, was up last night to shop CPL and get some sushi, looks like y'all got some nice snow:)
Thanks for responding Mr. Jones, at least someone did.
I do not have that bookmarked, so how do you get to it now?
OK, my eyes are not that old so I must just be stupid. Where is the reader comment section? The one that used to come up so you can look back for days to see what others are talking about? I can't seem to find it, I know I am not blind.
I will just resort to hoping the Gov keeps his word.
Is there some way to put this to a vote?
Contrary to this groups belief, there is a large amount of people very much against this, a vote would solidify it one way or the other.
There must be something else a bit more valley compatible that these people could spend the money burning a hole in their pocket on, IMO, a casino just is not the right fit for this area.
I just hope the Gov stands by his feeling and remains a "non-fan".
Even though I live in Craig, Steamboat has always been my playground and I spend alot of time biking, hiking and spending money in Steamboat. I started skiing that mountain when the lift ticket price was $21 (showing my age, i know)...I gave it all up when it exceeded $80.
I know it won't make any difference at all, but my only advice to Ski Corp is to offer a locals discount on daily lift tickets. I am not talking 5 bucks off either, I am talking like half off. I realize they offer discount season passes, but a lot of us don't have that kind of time and it would never get used like it should.
Gouge the tourists, they expect it.
