The thread was shut down because the only comments on it were inflammatory, racist and hateful.

And, you're right, that does not reflect the views of the Pleasanton Weekly and its staff.

With that explanation I will agree that the comments should have been deleted. Locking the thread to registered users only would work if some of us were not still opposed to being outed when we register.
