Re: “Knodell Wins Tight Race to Keep Burlington City Council Seat

I have just got to say something here, because I'm astounded by some of these last comments. "Nameless voices?" "Ignorant and mean-spirited?" Are you kidding me? The people who have commented here (at least 3 of whom did use actual names) were stating their opinions and expressing concern over the attitude of a former candidate, based on a direct quote. Why on earth is this "ignorant?" It seems that any opinions Genese Grill's friends don't agree with are "ignorant" and any criticism that they don't approve of is "venomous." People with differing opinions from yours should not be "allowed" in a public dialogue? That sounds scarily dictatorial. Several people just said they were just glad that someone who expressed disinterest in actually holding public office didnt win. How is that abuse of the comments???

Also, regarding your outrage at people not using real names...Genese Grill has only begun using her real name very recently! People were complaining in the comments section of a few other articles after someone noticed her posting under a pseudonym during her campaign.
