Cornwall ON – Wow what a difference a few words can make. George Carlin and Lenny Bruce can only be looking from wherever their great spirits reside (if you believe in spirits) and only shake their heads and laugh at us all.
We’re a tiny media outlet. We are proud of our 30,000 + viewers per month here on The Cornwall Free News, but sometimes even I can put my own beliefs out of perspective.
I’ve chatted with a lot of people since my first editorial and have decided on a new policy. Starting as of today we will still allow our beloved Viewers to post using Pseudonyms, but their identies will have to be confirmed via email, phone etc. Similar to a Letter to the Editor.
Our largest concern is having an environment that can spark real dialog about issues. Not a playground for wolf packs or simply to abuse people, even gently.
Freedom of speech is so important in this world and shrinking so rapidly. When I look at voter turnouts here in Cornwall and in Ottawa it frankly frightens me about all of our futures.
So if you want to post please remember that courtesy costs no money no matter how annoying that other person’s statements are. Please note that we will verify your email address so please make sure the one you use to post is active, and thank you to everyone that helps make this the hottest growing news outlet in Eastern Ontario!
You can post your comments below. Just take the specimen jar and go behind the curtain…..
