WITN encourages commenting on our web stories to give you a chance to share your thoughts with others. Information flow is no longer a one way street. Our viewers and web users tell us that interaction is critical. Posting comments is a great way for you to interact with us and witn.com’s users in and outside of eastern North Carolina. Commenting is not just an outlet for you to post an opinion. Our comments also allow you to ask questions, to have inspired debates and to engage in civilized arguments with other witn.com visitors.
WITN quickly scans each comment before it appears on the website. We have a list of guidelines we use when enacting that process. Click here for "Hey, Read The Rules!"
Due to the large number of comments we receive, inappropriate comments will occasionally make it on to the site. We rely upon the online community to notify us of comments that we should review. If you have a complaint about a specific comment, you can leave a comment on the story or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. We do track IP addresses and we reserve the right to ban repeat violators.
WITN staff members spend a significant amount of time addressing and responding to complaints, as well as reviewing and managing comments. We consider the comment feature an important part of witn.com, because it gives you a voice.
