Stalker Alert! Why we had to disable comments

Here at watchdog, we welcome the participation of readers and writers and we are always happy to publish commentary or work on a lead passed on to us.  That said, our website has recently fallen victim to individuals who use it to post false personal information about private citizens.  This information is of a personal, rather than a political or policy nature and those involved are not elected or appointed officials.

Watchdog is not the place to get back at your girlfriend for breaking up with you.  It is not the forum for discussing how or why your husband met another woman.  That is your personal business and really none of ours.  So until those misusing the comments section move on to find other means of working out their personal dramas, Watchdog will keep comments disabled.
