It was not my intention to single out the Wednesday Journal but did wonder what was behind the decision to withdraw ads from the publication after so many years. Probably a business call. I do post occasionally on Yahoo and Huffington Post and notice that neither site will display comments that are deemed offensive by the moderator or subsequently removed having been found to be objectionable by users. That's what the WJ provides with the flag option. A smart move. I suggest we just agree to disagree and leave it at that. Let other folks have their say.

Jim, Have you ever read the Tribune comments ? Have you been on the internet lately? For you to single out OP.Com is unfair.

I agree that staff limitations play a factor but there's no excuse for allowing people who regularly violate the comment policy to continue to post. The opportunity to flag posts is a positive step and was likely instituted in response to forum user's complaints. Some very vulgar and offensive comments have shown up on these pages in the past and it is up to the publisher and editor to make sure that he is not providing a forum for hate speech and cyberbullying We'll have to agree to disagree about contributing to a civil discourse and how standards should be applied and enforced. But understand that you will never see any offensive and cruel comments in the print edition of the Wednesday Journal.

I am deathly offended by the movie Riddick. That Vin Diesel character stirs feelings inside a woman she should never have!

I think OP.Com does as good of job as expected considering they DONT HAVE A FULL TIME PERSON inspecting the comments 24-7!!! Lighten up Jim and realize the extreme opposite is NO COMMENTING at all.

Nonsense. The majority of comments posted on this forum advance a civil discourse on the issues of the day. That's the policy. "Lighten up" about hate speech is not in my nature and I will continue to express my opinion when it appears on this pages.

I would like to nominate J Coughlin as the unpaid reviewer of all comments on OP.com. Hours 9-5p M-F. Full benefits including name tag and T Shirt. I think Coughlin needs to lighten up and appreciate the ability to even comment at all. Thanks OP.Com for what you do. It's like a Democracy. Fluid and not easy.

Dan, has the Lake Theater offered any explanation for the decision to pull it's ads from your paper? You are right that a lot of readers have looked to the Wednesday Journal for information on current movies and showtimes. Classic Cinemas does not do much print advertising anymore and is now only available in the Friday edition of the Trib. Was this strictly an economic decision or a corporate response to not wanting to linked somehow to the policy that has allowed vile and racist comments to be posted on the oakpark.com website? It's difficult to understand and accept why these postings were not immediately deleted but appreciate that those that are most offensive can now be flagged.

Well folks, after 33 years of doing business -- as long as the Journal has been around -- our friends at the Lake Theatre/Classic Cinemas have recently cancelled their weekly ad which listed showtimes. That's why you haven't seen that information the past couple of weeks. Based on the phone calls I've taken directly and others to our switchboard, there are a number of frustrated readers out there. We'd sure like the ad back. If you would, too, call Mark Mazrimas, the marketing manager at Classic Cinemas, at 630-786-4705. His e-mail is mmazrimas@classiccinemas.com. Thanks, Dan

On behalf of my 89-year-old mother, who still goes to one or two movies a year at the Lake Theatre and has been going to movies there since it opened in the 1930s, is it true that Classic Cinemas no longer runs ads in the Wednesday Journal or the Pioneer Press? I couldn't find an ad in the last two Journals.
