To the Editor:

The online version of your newspaper is publishing a series of seemingly unmonitored and unwarranted comments and attacks against our Island residents.

Your newspaper allows unnamed and anonymous writers to freely disgrace members of the community with no accountability. Your newspaper encourages these wanton attacks by allowing the authors to hide behind fictitious names, often making false and unproven allegations to disgrace an Island resident they may have had a personal issue with.

How about some ethics, accountability, and honest journalism? At one time, I relied on this newspaper as the watchdog of our community, and now it has become a disgrace in many ways.
