The disclaimer at the top of every comment submission box on the online edition of your newspaper states that "Comments are monitored. Any comments found to be abusive, offensive, off-topic, misrepresentative, more than 200 words or containing URLs will not be posted."

Yet on almost every page of comments there is at least one comment telling someone "to leave Utah if they don't like it."

I feel that telling people to leave Utah because they disagree with the status quo is the same as telling someone to shut up.

The people who post comments like that are usually anonymous and never have an opinion to offer other than that they want everyone to stop disagreeing with them. Utah has been a part of the United States since 1896. Americans have the right to live wherever they want, even if they disagree with their neighbors.
