Another newspaper recently whined that it’s virtually impossible to stop people from logging in via a variety of names and how helpless that newspaper is to stop it from happening.
Tinytown Unleashed has worked diligently to stop anonymous commenters from having a lot of ribald fun with town officials and civilians in the Cohasset community.
There are currently over 6,000 people registered on our site.
Only 109 of them can read and comment on our site.
The bulk of the people registered on our site HAVE NO ROLE (are blackballed) on our site. That’s because they sign in with weird names, no names, or names that give one pause.
You should not be deceived, little grasshopper, by newspapers that say they are helpless to stop anonymous commenters from calling you crazy, a horse thief, or worse.
We’ve noticed that those newspapers take comments down pretty quickly when their very favorite people are mentioned in that vein. Not so much when it’s the rest of us.
As for Cohasset’s acting town manager’s complaint that Tinytown Unleashed hurts his feelings a lot:
Well, at least we do it under our own name. We don’t call ourselves Cohasset007 or frozenturkeys for all. Everything we blog happens at the selectmen’s meeting, every week.
We are truly sorry that Selectman Diane Kennedy gets nasty e-mails and phone calls. If she does, they are certainly not from us. If she hears herself discussed at French Memories maybe it’s because she’s a newsmaker…the closest thing we have in Cohasset to royalty.© Copyright 2013 Tanna K, All rights Reserved.
