The DW has another Ron Armstrong rant in the 5/15 online edition. Ordinarily, posting a reply is a glacially-slow process as the moderator mulls it over for up to several days. In this case, the decision is instant: "Comments for this thread are now closed."
Some people are not to contradicted.

I don't want anyone to think I am defending Ron Armstrong, because he is a nut ( apologies to walnuts, peanuts, filberts, and almonds), but the daily world hasn't allowed comments to letters for a long time.

A new editor or publisher appears to have modified that policy. I don't know why Armstrong's is off limits.
