While we support free speech, we do not condone personal attacks, libelous statements or unsubstantiated accusations. To curb what we deem damaging communications, we have installed a log-in process for anyone wanting to leave comments.
To register, one simply needs to enter a valid e-mail address. The registrant will then receive an email confirmation with a provided password that can be changed after registration. Each time he or she wishes to post a comment, a log-in to the site will be necessary. UPDATE: For your convenience, you can now log in using Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google, Yahoo, Open ID, and WordPress as well as the regular Stacey Page Online Registration Process.
To maintain anonymity, those posting comments will not need to provide their real names, but email addresses and IP addresses will be known by the web administrators of StaceyPageOnline.com. We will not share that information.
This new log-in policy is our way of promoting a healthy debate while holding individuals responsible for their posts. In addition, the community as a whole will be able to police the comments by “liking” or “disliking” individual comments.
Numerous “dislike” clicks from posters on comments will cause those comments to fade until they eventually disappear from the comments section. We have opted to use that method to allow the public to police the debates and decide what is appropriate. The administrators of StaceyPageOnline.com, however, will continue to monitor comments for foul language and those comments will be edited for appropriateness.
It was never the intent of Stacey Page or of The Papers to allow hurtful comments to be made about or to anyone.
