Comments should be allowed to correct (even if only viewed by the author) outright mis-statements of fact. As an example- Ken Tucker's column on June 25 contained both a non-truth and a statement that could easily be refuted. A casual reader would not have the chance to see "the other side" of the argument and would not be able to determine the veracity of his (or a contradictory) position.
This is another reason why I am considering severing all ties with Yahoo- offering slanted commentary and news aggregation that gives only one viewpoint and silences opposing voices is not a cause I choose to support.
