The chairs of the Lewisboro Republican, Democratic and Conservative town committees don’t always agree on everything, but we do agree that from time to time the online reader comments on The Ledger website go far beyond the bounds of civil discourse or polite discussion. We plead with our fellow residents to be more judicious in their comments. As well, we suggest that The Ledger implement a system of moderated comments so that reader comments do not appear online until OK’d by a Ledger staff member to be consistent with its policy for printed letters to the editor, which states, “We won’t publish letters libelous or in poor taste …” There is already enough mean-spirited ill will in the world — let’s do our bit in Lewisboro to embrace a more level-headed approach to expressing our views.
