Would you remove questionable comments from the site? Should we?
I write about a lot of IT executives on Movers & Shakers. Sometimes, a CIO named in one of my posts will generate heated comments from readers. When my colleagues and I find these comments, we’re not sure whether we should remove them or leave them up. Legal precedents set in this area have conflicted.
We may not change our policies based on this discussion because we are beholden to whatever legal precedent is set, but we do want your feedback. Where would you draw the line on comments if you had control over this site? How do other sites handle this issue? What do you think is appropriate for CIO.com?
