I was just thinking last week how bad this website is. Says a lot about the state of news online in CA.

To Ironic: What do you think is bad about the site? I don't mean to say you are wrong (although I don't agree) but it's easy say and not likely to get anything changed if you just say "how bad this website is". If there are aspects of the site that don't work well for you lets hear about them - in a positive sprit. That is the only way things can change. Perhaps this comment area is not the best place but unless you tell the staff some very specific things they can evaluate and fix you will never get what you're looking for.

Personally - I love the local aspect of the site; I read it everyday. I like the ability to comment to my community although I dislike the snarky nature these comment sometimes take (I'm not sure there's much the Weekly can do about that). And the login thing is awkward - that is I read an article then read the comments and then want to comment so I have to scroll back to the top, click on login and go to the login page. Not a major complaint.

Congratulation to the Weekly, I think it's deserved.

Gigantic congratulations to Palo Alto Online and staff. I know we have the best, but it's nice that others know it too. I'm always flabbergasted when I talk to Palo Alto residents who never follow any of the local news and happenings, and I always give them the website address for registering for the daily online news. Thank you very much PA Online !

Congratulations Bill, Chris, and the Weekly staff. It's a tough job, particularly herding unruly cats on Palo Alto Online.
