Can You People Just Try To Be Civil?

For years we have been asking people to try to be civil. We have a set of rules, many of which a select few attempt to disregard.

We do not allow cursing on Salisbury News. No personal attacks. NO CAPITAL LETTERS. No racial slurs/attacks.

If you send something in, especially under anonymous, it will and does get rejected. If you put your name to it on a registered Google account we will publish it as YOU own it.

Coming back on here and trying to complain that your comment was rejected for no good reason is a complete lie. We reject those comments as well because they simply aren't true.

Yesterday and today we are experiencing a higher than normal volume of such comments. I'm pretty confident these comments are coming from one or two different people who may own a competitive Blog in the hopes we'll slip and let one through, especially the racial comments. 

If we do happen to slip, please let us know right away and we'll make sure it is removed immediately. With hundreds of comments coming in every single day, it is very time consuming to read each and every one of them and publish them in real time.

If you haven't gotten it yet, we will catch them and we will reject them. It just goes to prove that there are some insane people in our area who keep doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different outcome. Need I say more!
