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 engage in civilized arguments with other witn.com visitors.

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 witn@witn.comWe 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.

    Thank you for having the Comments section up in the first place. It's helpful for those involved, even peripherally, with stories to correct inaccuracies. For whatever reason, stories are not always complete or correct (e.g. upset folks may not wish to speak to the press), but if someone personally involved can come up here and correct misinformation, it's helpful. There are a few people, however, who seem to misuse the system, and I was wondering how to go about notifying WITN about these comments. Some of them get pretty ugly, and there's really no call for that; even though, say, Republicans and Democrats may disagree, there's no reason for it to get personal. Resorting to a personal attack, in my book, tells me one has conceded all of one's points and is now grasping for straws. And this site really isn't the place for personal battles in the first place (unless you're involved with the story, I suppose).

    for all the moving parts witn has to deal with, for all the delicate creatures witn must protect against being offended, i believe witn is a tremendous asset to the community and provides excellant briefing on the news. the online forum allows us to get a "feel" for the mood of our neighbors. once again, great job witn, keep it up. PLUS; your occassional grammatical errors are NOT that tramatic to most readers. i couldn't do your job. thanks

    Amazing. If a white person kills a black person it is "racial", however, when a black kills two whites, the black leaders cry aloud when someone says it is racial. The issue with race in America is that (at times) (some) blacks want it both ways.

    Freedom of speech is a wonderful thing. But I think the section is just a bunch of name calling and slandering one another. And yes that is freedom of speech and yes I have the choice not to read them.Serious stories about rape and murder and all you read is nasty remarks about one another. Rule number #1, 6,8,9 and 10 are broken over and over again. And yes in the past I have written in and commented on the rule being broken. Nothing was done. Bloggs were continued to be posted that were "against the rules". I think its a shame. You think you are doing such a great thing for the viewers but its unprofessional to have your "rules" but not abide by them.
