While I don't know this to be absolutely true, I believe most of the time The Pilot's editors delete a comment the comment came from Kent. Will there ever be a time when the paper says "enough is enough" and bans him from commenting at all. Return his subscription fee. At the very least any time somebody/anybody cites a "fact" require him/her to include a link to the source of said fact(s), if they don't do so don't allow said fact to appear as a comment. This should be a stated requirement for the privilege of commenting. I realize that the comment section is not an academic publication, so requiring links to supposed "facts" may seem a bit extreme. But assertions of "facts" that are actually lies can be dangerous, especially now.

The Brookside Park Apartment complex is the very definition of an on-going threat to the community

Yep, 4,300 fakers just today in North Carolina. We were enjoying a booming economy, and still could have, had some not viewed the virus as you. Just a simple statement of how dangerous the virus could be, advise to take all precautionary measures, that was all Trump needed to do, and he would have been re elected, he didn't, and now, well you know the rest of the story.

Well, at least they're not blaming everything on the lack of prayer in schools any more.
