"By allowing such a story to air, you have become no better than the tabloid magazines and television programs I refuse to read and watch. Rev. Slaughter is not my pastor, nor am I a member of his faith, but I believe every person deserves privacy in matters such as these."
A fellow clergyman also disagreed that this was news. But he had a slightly different viewpoint.
"I do not recall any news report by WQDJ on the positive ministries that West Salem Baptist Church has been involved in our community, and there have been many positive and good ministries that this Church has contributed to the residents of the Roanoke Valley. I will continue to watch your news programs because I believe an honest judgment by the news editors was made, but I do expect to start seeing some positive reporting on the ministries, activities and churches that contribute to the residents of the Roanoke Valley."
And a Christiansburg viewer applauded our coverage.
"I think your coverage of Reverent Slaughter's resignation was appropriate and newsworthy. As a minister of the Gospel he is a public servant and open to scrutiny just as our mayor or anyone else in the public eye. Did you not report also that his spouse had forgiven him? Not once did I hear sensational wording or any bias on your part. Please keep up the good work you do as an excellent source of news."

There's a demographic breakdown on the Commercenet website.

Internet Security company eEye says microsoft ignored them when they discovered a security flaw that could give hackers access to credit card numbers at hundreds of thousands of sites, including Disney, Nasdaq, and Barnes and Noble.

So eEye began offering free software that would allow hackers to break into microsoft servers... they say they wanted to force the company to fix the problem.
Last week microsoft posted a security patch on it's website.
