The Mountain Democrat Website has recently been hit with massive deletions of comments.
Is the Mountain Democrat nervous about comments concerning local and federal events?
Or, perhaps comments about individuals that are a little bit too close to home?

Editor’s note: The Mountain Democrat does not censor comments on its Website based on the viewpoints of the commenter. Deleted comments manually are solely for libel issues, which is rare. Most comments missing are deleted on an automatic-based system for being “flagged as abusive” by a number of other viewers of the Website, or for containing curse words or what the system perceives as spam links.
