The RGJ could do incredibly well reading this and at least taking a step or two toward trying to adhere to it. I think they violate the first two things he says and the third is probably happening. Those things make their site a total joke and make people not believe that comments in news can be useful when they should be a part of every story. I’d like nothing more than for commenters to be accountable for what they say, just like they are here and on other sites. If you say something here that makes no sense, is attacking of others, or whatever, then I will call you out. Authors of stories should do the same on their site.
