Letter: Online commenters distracting

Online commenters distracting

I’ve been a reader of The Detroit News for several years. My letter has to do with the comment section on the online news. I’d like to say that I am genuinely concerned with the dialogue that happens between commenters responding to stories published by the news.

There are so many hateful, critical, ignorant comments that I often have to stop looking at the page. Most of the stated comments become divisive whenever a political issue is written, whether one is siding to the right or the left. My opinion is if you wouldn’t say something to someone in person, you probably shouldn’t be typing the message. I wish your company would do a better job in moderating the comments or closing more articles to comment.
