Dear Message Board Users:
You will find the nwitimes.com message boards unavailable for access.
Due to abusive behavior by some message board participants, we are discontinuing the service for an indefinite period.
Clearly established site rules and guidelines have been repeatedly violated creating an unacceptable environment for the majority of site users.
We are evaluating alternatives to help ensure weíre providing an inviting and respectful environment that encourages healthy participation and discourse among all our users from the communities we serve.
The message boards will return once necessary adjustments are complete.
Until then, we invite you to visit the other areas of the nwitimes.com site - itís updated several times a day with local and national breaking news.
So the Hammond Mayor must have more pull than the Crown Point Mayor. Look at all the crap that has been written about him and the board never got shut down.
