It has come to our attention that commenters who choose to comment with their real-names on the website are being targeted by local leadership for making comments.
Those being targeted are the ones who expressed concern over White Island. They are essentially being harassed. These people have received phone calls, been emailed, and approached over their comments. Instead of certain leadership answering questions or concerns, they are hostilely approaching people.
It is true that if you speak your mind you need to be prepared for the consequences and i’m not defending what any commenter may or may not have said.
We do however think it is wrong to be targeting any commenter instead of addressing their concerns.
For this reason “Anonymous” commenting is here to stay.
