Keep responses civil and in the public forum
A couple of months ago, an opinion letter I wrote to the editor was published. As expected, I received a couple of responses agreeing with what I said. But what floored me was receiving one sent to my home address that was hostile to what I had written. This person had gone to the trouble of finding my home address and my full name and sent it to my private haven from the world.
This woman entered my private space by sending her letter to my home. That is completely wrong and so pathetic. I would recommend to this person that she never do anything so deplorable again — but I don’t think that would stop her.
If she wants to disagree with me the next time, I ask that she please do so in a letter addressed to Editor, Times-Dispatch so the world can see what she writes.
