It's with a sigh of relief that I can announce we've decided to pull the plug on the comments... more

By removing the ability to comment, they have shown themselves for what they are, irrelevant.

The only value of the comments is for entertainment. You can't trust them to reflect honest opinion.

Yeah they are probably way too honest in those comments. This is just more censorship and people being afraid to have others express opinions. That's the scary part. That's what parties like the Nazi's have always done, turn everyone into a mob of snitches.

Plenty of media ban comments, what irks me is when they ban comments only on certain subjects like that SPECIAL nation we are supposed to bow to.

I am from Detroit - and the Metro Times is the liberal/leftists local paper of choice. It was distributed freely around town and all the alternative lifestyle businesses, bars, groups, etc...advertised in it.

Its too bad. I bet those comments were worth reading...imagine conservative trollers blowing up the threads with truth bombs...splody heads all over the place...
