Re: “A Culture of Civility

This is an Constitutional issue and needs to be approached cautiously. What needs attention is as a mature adult can you be of a civil tongue? If not all will see that and you have done nothing but show your immaturity. Now we have separated the speaker from the speech. This is where that fore mentioned caution needs to come in. Tread lightly keeping in mind this applies to you as well if you are honest.

Re: “A Culture of Civility

Speaking to the comment by Janice T (who I don't think I know): John Chiv is anything but decent in his writing and public comments. He is unethical and dishonest. He cares not about how his words harm. Oft times, I believe he intends for his words to cause harm. It is disgusting that Chiv, a person of color, is so committed to kissing the ass of the oppressive, white ruling good ole boy class in Humboldt.

Here are some of my comments:

Re: “A Culture of Civility

Do you have an inalienable right to anonymously spew hate speech in our comments section or anyone else's?

Naah--that's what Twitter is for... :-)

Re: “A Culture of Civility

Good job, not just managing your site but striving for transparency. I appreciate the effort to keep it both "real" and civil.

Re: “A Culture of Civility

Thank you so much for this! NCJ and John Chiv seem to be the only ones willing to maintain any sort of decency standards. I'm sick of having to watch every single thing that I say so that I don't draw a pile-on for no good reason. Sometimes it happens anyway, no matter how careful that you are. This is what is truly stifling freedom of speech; a rabid, vocal minority being allowed to control virtually every local blog, amped by the administration of said blogs and running off almost everyone who is even vaguely decent. You are a breath of fresh air!

Re: “'A Fundamental and Necessary Right'

Who do I need to vote against or for? If this is staff, who are their bosses?

Re: “'A Fundamental and Necessary Right'

I often disagree with your collective editorial outlook, but there's no denying all y'all excel at investigative reporting when you want to. The fact that the journal is also free and tangible, available to anybody, is very important and very much appreciated. Thank you all!
