I got home from dinner last night to learn that not only could I not post to the Martha’s Vineyard Times website, all my earlier comments had been removed from the Sheriff’s Meadow story. This is flattering, sure — it’s nice to know that one’s writing is having an effect — but it’s bewildering too. My posts have been mostly about facts: refuting errors, clarifying points, and adding significant details. This is so threatening they have to remove the comments from public view? Usually when comments are removed, “comment removed” or something similar is left in its place. Mine are gone without trace. Wow.
