I don't agree on the completely closed comments because I think it's important that people can comment on any subject to gain a better understanding of it; however, I do agree with you that some of the comments are over-the-top cruel and heartless, and are more attacks than comments.
I would suggest WWAY monitor more closely and omit the personal attacks where posters call other posters names. I have seen a lot of these posts get completely out of control with no monitoring on WWAY's part. I have also read personal attacks on families who just lost loved ones. That's totally uncalled for, no matter what the deceased did. It's hurtful to the family. WWAY, please be responsbile and stop displaying posts where there are personal attacks.
