FCW Insider: Open Government Dialogue and birth certificate postings
FCW received a letter to the editor suggesting one way that the Open Government Dialogue might deal with all the comments regarding Obama and his birth certificate.
The front page of this website now contains a notice from the National Academy of Public Administration addressing th e problem of thousands of posts asking for Obama's birth certificate and how this makes it difficult for persons trying to post on other issues to use the website. I've posted several comments regarding Obama's eligibility and some of these have been removed. I think this is unfair but I also am sensitive to the desire of others to be able to post on different topics without having tens of thousands of irate citizens concerned regarding Obama's illegitimacy overwhelming the website. I suggest the website moderators add a new folder under "Transparency" entitled "Presidential Eligibility Concerns" and move all eligibility posts to this folder. This would allow persons concerned that Obama continues to hide proof of his legitimacy to post without fear of being unfairly censored while protecting the rights of others to post on different topics without being overwhelmed by legitimacy posts.
