Letter to the Editor
Thursday, Nov. 14, 2013, 8:55 p.m.
 

This is in response to the letter “Try volunteering” (Nov. 2).

As a VND customer for many years, I enjoy reading the letters to the editor section. Some writers often make very good points and are very uplifting. We can all benefit from positive, uplifting and informative articles.

But the letters written by the author of “Try Volunteering” have stood out, as she makes obvious personal attacks on the writers of the letters she references. No matter what the previous writer's subject was, she finds a way to make a personal attack.

I feel sorry for anyone who gains satisfaction from this type of bullying. As a retired teacher, I witnessed this in schools from children, but to see an adult behave this way disgusts me.

There is nothing wrong with a difference of opinion, but this writer is concerned only with attacking someone else's character.

I don't enjoy reading such negative, childish personal attacks that have nothing to do with the original writer's subject matter. Shouldn't the VND weed out this type of “junk mail”?
