The freedom to shoot your mouth off without signing your name has turned the Missoulian’s online comments section into a gallery of mean, thoughtless and often plainly false statements. On July 11, you promoted one of these cowardly comments to the top of Section B, giving one of the most visible spaces in the paper to a sneering remark aimed at retiring City Public Works Director Steve King. He deserves better. And many readers find it repelling to be drawn into the spleen- venting tossed off by anonymous contributors.
