    As for the legality of the matter—I’m not quite certain what would be illegal. I guess you’d be referring to death threats? That kind of comment would be deleted, and I do not believe our current CMS would maintain a record of it.

    For posted comments, yes we have access. We have no firm policy on when/if we would release the IP information—though that is a policy we probably should develop in the near future.

    We don’t require usernames because we believe that ease of use is more important—not because we believe anonymity is absolutely necessary for these discussions.

    Which raises the question, Miles — are you logging IPs? What’s your comment to anonymity? If someone said something criminal on here and you were subpoenaed, would you turn over the person’s identity?

    I have to admit, ever since reading your opinions article last week, I’m growing attached to this idea, though it certainly raises tough issues as it pushes the front of journalism forward.

    “Daily Gazette, why aren’t my people represented in this set of photographs, because it’s all about ME, ME, ME, and my overblown identity, lest I ponder the thought that society isn’t specifically geared toward my every whim.”

    And, really all of Peter’s second comment for that matter.

    Miles, I agree that heated arguments should be allowed, but how have Peter’s comments not qualified as “offensive”?

    Wow, Peter, you really missed the point, didn’t you. Making more jokes about Native Americans is just not going to mask the fact that you got told.

    Actually, Mark Lewis ’10, don’t you think you’re leaving out all kinds of non-traditional names by assuming that I must have a first and last name? Perhaps my name is Peter of the Wind, or Sitting Peter. Maybe I’m just like Cher. Do you know how hard it is to fill out an IRS form or book a hotel room when you only have one name? How prejudiced of you.

    Furthermore, I am actually non-Native American. When it comes to my non-Native American-ness, society is also geared toward my whims. I can go to a casino without people thinking I work there, I can let out a single tear without people thinking that I am mourning for my polluted homeland, and finally, I can be quite sure that in news coverage of a dance, photos of non-Native American couples like mine will be represented. But I’m sure there are plenty of web sites and communities specifically dedicated to these needs, and throwing in a token Native American probably won’t do much to stop those damn Smallpox blankets from coming in the mail.

    Actually, Peter Doesn’tleavehislastname, I am straight. When it comes to my straightness, society is already geared toward my every whim. I can get married to a person I love, hold hands with a woman in public (without getting harassed), and finally, I can be quite sure that in news coverage of a dance, photos of different-gender couples like mine will be represented.

    17 photos of Screw. 15 pictures of non-Native American couples. 2 pictures of just one non-Native American person, one of which was then shown with his non-Native American date. Obviously there were Native American couples at Screw. Daily Gazette, why aren’t my people represented in this set of photographs, because it’s all about ME, ME, ME, and my overblown identity, lest I ponder the thought that society isn’t specifically geared toward my every whim.

    Mark,

    If you (or anyone you know) have any photos of Screw that you would like to see added to the set, please email them to me (cwhippl1). I was working with the pictures I was sent and the few I took while I was there, and unfortunately, same-gender couples were not represented in any of the photos I had to work with. But I am happy to add any photos that I receive, either via email, Facebook, or on the Gazette flickr site.

    Photographs were submitted to the Gazette by a variety of individuals—not from staff photographers on assignment. We have always accepted photographs through Facebook, Flickr, and email. Unfortunately, apparently, no photographs of same-gender couples were submitted.
