Sound Off

I think the Mercury needs to be more careful with the Sound Off comments they print.  Many of these comments are highly inappropriate and are very negative against Pottstown.  Many are based on stereotypes and generalities. 

Freedom of speech is one thing but many of these comments are hate speech.  Who monitors these comments?  More editorial discretion needs to be applied.  Every utterance does not need to be given credence and printed. 

There are more creative ways to increase newspaper sales than printing hateful comments from anonymous people.
