Associated Baptist Press announced today (March 3) that it
was suspending its “Comments” feature at its website.
In a statement on its site, David Wilkinson, ABP’s executive
director, said the change was temporary.
The decision was based on “consistent abuse of the
privilege,” Wilkinson said.
He said the news service would continue to look for
ways to improve its system.
ABP and New Voice Media partner sites are in the process of
developing upgrades to their sites. Part of that will include an “improved
registration process for online discussion that will eliminate participation by
anonymous persons,” Wilkinson stated.
The Biblical Recorder also suspended its comment section in
January. The BR’s Board of Directors felt it was a necessary step while
searching for the next editor/president. The BR is operating with an even
smaller staff and did not have the capability to monitor comments that
sometimes went too far.
(SPECIAL NOTE — Thank you for your continued support of the Biblical
Recorder site. During this interim period while we are searching for a new
Editor/President the comments section will be temporarily discontinued. Thank
you for your understanding and patience in this. If you do have comments or
issues with items we run, please contact [email protected]
or call 919-847-2127.)
