Dear readers,My comments were not about quashing ideas. There were two comments by the same poster. I did not request that the more acerbic one be removed; only the one that seemed to be a political ad. I now have a better understanding of these forums. They do not appear to be about debate, political or otherwise but more about debasement (no pun intended) and trivialization of genuine ideas. The article Mr. Hahn presented was well written, well researched and concise in its explanation of a very complex topic. I hope that is what remains with the readers.

I am asking that the comments by loonpt (anonymous profile)October 10, 2011 at 10:25 a.m. be removed. This is not a forum to advise the readers of ones political views. I noticed loonpt has commented over 800 times on other articles, the few comments I read by loonpt were all negative. Mr. Hahn has not only written an excellent article, but he has made economics interesting to those of us who were not economics majors. I enjoy the Independent and respect the rights of free speech, but as the guidelines state "Be succinct, constructive, and relevant to the story." loonpt's political views are not relative to the story and in my opinion his comments are not constructive.
