This is just a sample of Thursday's heated debate.

At this time social workers must have "clear and convincing evidence of child abuse," before filing a complaint.
The new wording lowers the burden of proof to "a preponderance of evidence." ((SEN.

An Internet surfer from Blacksburg is critical of efforts to control computer pornography, both on a state and federal level.
"This is just another attempt by government to censor and regulate what we see," he wrote. You need be concerned with this matter as well. Once they start censoring the Internet, they'll start to want to censor everything. Please, when running stories like that, take the consequences of your actions into consideration. The story you ran was slanted towards the opinion that the Internet should be censored. The Internet shouldn't be censored, the kids should."
Another viewer from Blacksburg thought our story on Virginia climatologist Pat Micheals' views on global warming was one-sided.
"The general consensus among climate change researchers...is that ever increasing outputs of greenhouse gases by industrial societies are affecting the climate, and while prediction of the impacts will always have uncertainty, the potential risk to humanity and the biosphere is so great that to ignore the problem and put off response could be "catastrophic". You do a great disservice to your viewers by effectively dismissing what may be one of the most critical issues facing us at the global and local levels. Of course, we do not want to cause undue anxiety for those living in harm's way (i.e. the floodplain), or incur unnecessary expenses in our economy. But, on the other hand, if the community is not presented a complete and balanced picture of the information that exists, then you are not supporting rational social discourse."
