Maine Today Media, Inc. dailies The Portland Press Herald, Kennebec Journal and Waterville Morning Standard have shuttered the comments section of their online editions.

Publisher Richard Connor attributed the move to numerous "hurtful and vulgar" anonymous postings following articles that appeared on, the online edition of the daily newspaper. He left open the possibility of reinstating the comments section provided a way can be found effectively to hold posters accountable for their remarks.
