Doug mentions on his blog:
"However, any comments that venture too far into right/wrong will be deleted by me (as off-topic). This is not censorship:"
"For "I'm right, you're wrong," go elsewhere."
But that has been Doug's mantra for years--that he is right and everyone else is wrong. Views that are not in complete agreement with his view are not to be tolerated. Only Doug knows the real facts of the issues--everyone else is being misleading.
Giving Doug a blog with editing control is a serious mistake by the Weekly.
