Consider different strategy for online participation

I enjoy The Maui News online and have for years. I’ve never understood why, in order to participate in thoughtful discourse in the comments forum of each section, I’m required to have a Facebook account.

I recently deleted my Facebook account (for several reasons, most notably security) and ever since I’ve felt locked out, unable to share my thoughts and opinions. I’m sure there are many others out there like me. Here’s hoping that The Maui News soon considers adopting a different participation strategy.
