Why did ADN remove the public commenting on the Real Estate Indictments posted this week? What kind of public pressure prompted that. Thanks.
We are in the process of converting adn.com from one publishing system to another. This would be analogous to converting an office from one computer system to another, running two systems while moving the data from the old one to the new one. As part of that process, we had to temporarily disable the story comments feature throughout the site. Also as part of that process, comments from past stories did not get transferred over.
To my knowledge, the real estate indictments have prompted no public pressure on the newspaper or anyone else.
