Some online debaters need to get out of the sandbox
Following the online debate by commenters on the newspaper's website would be funny...if it wasn't so mean-spirited.
It also offers insight into just how closed-minded, petty and underhanded some people can be when it comes to debating issues.
Instead of talking about issues, options, compromises and real solutions, web debate sometimes devolves into name-calling, ranting and childish behavior more fitting for a sandbox.
