Let me congratulate both The Modesto Bee and the Turlock Journal for their policies of not accepting vitriolic, hateful comments from anonymous people. Why would anyone cater to readers who enjoy such trash?

I’m sure that most decent people agree with me that insulting and humiliating someone is not exactly a virtue. Anyone with a computer knows that the internet is saturated with anonymous acerbic comments. It is a sad commentary on your character if your self-esteem requires watching other people being denigrated.
