To: the TownHall Staff From: Just me so far... This will by my last visit to your site for the next three months. The reason I'm leaving is that trolls are allowed to vandalize the entire site because the staff will NOT ban by IP address. You ban a name or an email. It takes about 5 minutes to create a new gmail account. It takes an additional 5 minutes to create a new account on TH. Therefore, once you "ban" someone and pat yourselves on the back, 10 minutes later your regular readers and posters are once again inundated with inane spam. Enough is enough. See you in three months to see if you have your act together.

Unfortunately, they seem to want to run this site as very open to anyone with a view. That worked before, but with all the obvious paid trolls lately, it isn't working anymore.

I still like reading my favorite columnists, but it's getting very troublesome to post a comment.

I hope you sent that via a contact email and not just posted it here.
Black Friday always brings out the worst: long lines, short tempers and random outbreaks of shoppers' rage. This year, Big Labor will ratchet up the Strikesgiving tension with professional grievance-mongers and workers picketing at 1,000 Wal-Mart stores nationwide.

Attention, Wal-Mart directors: Mob appeasement never works. They've tried repeatedly to stave off union thuggery through political "partnerships" and capitulation. It has failed and failed and failed.

As you may recall, the discount retail giant shocked many observers in 2009 when it announced it was embracing the principles of President Obama's federal health care mandate. The nation's largest private (and non-union) employer was...
