Why is an article about a proposed Midtown trail re-posted with no comments allowed?
Original post made by Midtowner, Midtown, on May 4, 2013
Following the story, several Midtown residents posted comments pointing out that the people opposed to the trail do not represent all of Midtown inhabitants, contrary to what the article seemed to imply. I thought this was a worthwhile discussion. My family, among other Midtown residents, would love to have that bike trail along Matadero Creek.
Lo and behold, the original story has now been eliminated from the front page, re-posted in its entirety under a new title, and the comment thread to this new article is locked.
What does this mean? Does Palo Alto Online not want legitimate Midtown residents to assert that they like the project? Are we only allowed to oppose it? This really is strange... I have to wonder if the editor is one of the few residents opposed to this project. I am more and more disappointed in this forum.
