There was a big reaction to a recent Comment of the Day prompted by threats from Anonymous to expose Denver mayor Michael Hancock's alleged ties to the Denver Players prostitution ring if he doesn't resign and change his homeless policies.

Many of those who responded concurred about the first part of his take but disagreed with the last.
Here's an example in which the author highlights topics she sees as more important than whether or not Hancock has or hasn't paid for sex.
