Email News Alerts

The newspaper has, in this space, repeatedly told online readers what they should not do while posting comments to stories and other readers' feedback.


They've been told to not engage in personal attacks, for instance, and to not try to guess the identities of online posters, and to not use profanity.

But we haven't devoted much space to tell online commenters what they can - or should - do.
