A note on comments on newsday.com

You’ll notice that we are temporarily putting our Comments section on hold. Our team is currently working on developing a new environment and process for reader comments that will encourage comments that are constructive, informative and useful while discouraging those that are offensive.

We have a responsibility to all of our readers to maintain a commenting section both vibrant and respectful. We expect to have that in place later this year, and we appreciate your patience.

In the meantime, if you want to respond to our coverage you can always submit a letter to the editor for publication by emailing letters@newsday.com. Thanks for your interest and understanding.
