    I was really scared when I had that blow out on the highway. Thank God my cousin was with me and she knew the area. She called Jim's Towing and they were there faster than I thought they could've been. They made everything easy. I couldn't thank you enough, April. Thanks, Jims!

    Extremely poor service. Actually no service. AAA should not use these people. They are beyond shady. After waiting for the tow truck to come, we saw their truck go right by. We called & were told we're next. They called back & said they were given the wrong address by AAA. Then they said we were rude to the driver. Both lies. No driver ever showed up. Also AAA confirmed the address given them. Another business in the area said they didn't want to do the job. If customers are relying on them, they're in bad shape. DO NOT USE. Integrity completely missing.

    There are two sides to every story. We all know that. We've all heard one side of the story and formed an opinion - only to be shocked and embarrassed when we heard the other side and learned we had jumped to the conclusions.

    As journalists, we train ourselves to wait until we've heard the second side, and the third and fourth sides, before beginning to draw conclusions.

    We work to make sure every story in the newspaper and on our Web site is balanced, with all sides given equal time.

    But, as the folks at Jim's Towing have discovered, open discussion forums on the Internet create an entirely different challenge.

    The rules that apply to journalism don't exist on Web forums such as "Your Talk" on MonroeTalks.com. They are in a "reader-beware" environment.

    One of the recent topics on MonroeTalks.com offers a classic example of that basic and unflattering human trait - the tendency to jump to conclusions - and how damaging it can be when combined with the speed and range of the Internet.

    The story starts with a fire drill at the CSDD (Comprehensive Services for the Developmentally Disabled) building in Monroe.

    A loud noise, which some people believed was an M-80 firecracker, frightened the disabled residents who were participating in the fire drill.

    As the event was described on the MonroeTalks.com forum, an employee of CSDD thought the firecracker came from Jim's Towing, the business next door.

    The forum post painted a very unflattering picture of Jim's Towing.

    People who responded on the forum were outraged. They promised to boycott the business and to pass the word on to their friends.

    Then an odd thing happened. The original post on the forum disappeared.

    Others who had been participating in the conversation were puzzled, so they started it up again, reposting the original complaint and continuing to attack Jim's Towing.

    Then another perspective surfaced.

    Timothy Peck, owner of Jim's Towing, joined the conversation on MonroeTalks.com. He said the noise wasn't from a firecracker, but from a tire being mounted and the bead being seated. He said no one was laughing at the disabled residents of CSDD; his 13-year-old son was laughing at his father, who singed the hairs on his arm in the tire seating process.

    In other words, he said, it was a misunderstanding. The original post apparently had been removed by the author when the truth was learned.

    In the days that followed, the discussion continued on the forum. Many people apologized for jumping to conclusions, some argued over whether a tire being seated could really sound like an M-80 firecracker, and others pointed out how unfair it is for a businesses' reputation to be damaged by an Internet talk forum.

    Generally, though, the forum had succeeded in getting both sides out in the open.

    Unfortunately, that's not the end of the story.

    Early on, before Mr. Peck offered his side, someone e-mailed the original post to a friend, who sent it to another friend, and so-on.

    I've received the same e-mail three times in the last three weeks, from three different people. It has taken on a life of its own, spreading across the country.

    April Peck, Timothy's wife and co-owner of the business, told me this week she heard from someone in Illinois who received the e-mail. It includes only the original accusation - not Mr. Peck's explanation.

    People across the country are hearing only one side.

    "It seems like no one wants to hear our side of the story," April Peck said. "People just want to jump to a conclusion that fits their ideas."

    The marauding e-mail is quite a different issue from the discussion forum.

    We're excited about the success of MonroeTalks.com. Area residents appear to be embracing our experiment in social networking on the Web.

    Literally thousands are visiting MonroeTalks.com every day.

    I'm amazed at the depth and quality of the conversations that fly by in our local version of cyberspace.

    We don't moderate the forums. While we watch for posts that violate the "terms of service" for the Web site, such as inappropriate or commercial uses, we don't referee the discussions.

    In a very real sense, we consider them to belong to the users. We figure that people choose open discussion forums partly because they don't want to be censored.

    When a business or individual is criticized on an open forum, they have the opportunity to defend themselves, as Mr. Peck did.

    In the end, everyone can weigh in and people can form their own opinions after listening to all the views.

    E-mails that are forwarded through cyberspace are another matter altogether. There's no way to chase after them to offer perspective.

    If you receive the Jim's Towing e-mail, please don't forward it. There's another side to the story.

    As for the Jim's Towing discussion topic on MonroeTalks.com, we've frozen it so more comments can't be added. There's been enough talk on this topic; it's time to move on.

    Subject: This needs to be addressed!!

    Today I witnessed the most shameful behavior out of an area business that
    I have ever seen. Jim's Towing located on Franklin Ave, is situated right
    behind CSDD on Winchester St. CSDD provides services to Monroe County
    area residents that are physically and developmentally disabled.

    CSDD is required to conduct monthly fire drills for safety. It was the
    first time I had witnessed this drill, and since I was in the building I
    evacuated along with everyone else. I stood at the end of Franklin Street
    to stop any vehicles that may want to turn until all persons served were
    safely across the street. Many of the people evacuating during this
    practice drill were using walkers or wheelchairs.

    A young gentleman exited Jim's Towing stepped to the corner of the
    building, and lit an M-80. He was laughing hysterically after the blast
    startled the crowd and smoke filled the air. I witnessed one elderly
    gentleman using a walker fall to his knees when the blast sounded. There
    were many reactions to the blast, startled cries, etc.

    The manager of CSDD proceeded to the open garage door at Jim's Towing and
    asked if they thought such a prank was funny. She asked to speak to the
    manager, a gentleman replied, "How about the owner, that's me" They said,
    "It must have been a blown tire" and laughed. When the manager of CSDD
    said she would contact the police the owner asked her if she would like
    the number dialed for her and again laughed.

    The number was not needed, two officers patrolling on bicycles in the area
    heard the blast and immediately came to investigate.

    I am appalled that a business owner could support the thoughtless prank
    aimed at the disabled residents being served by CSDD. Do they find it
    funny to watch an elderly disabled gentleman fall to his knees in the
    middle of the road out of fear when hearing a loud blast. The reaction of
    the young man setting off the M-80 was hysterical laughter.

    I am posting this to appeal to all Monroe County residents. A local
    business owner showing such disregard for the disabled citizens of this
    county is inexcusable! I will never frequent this business, and I hope
    any of you reading this will do the same, and spread the word. Word of
    mouth is a powerful tool. This story can be verified by the police
    department, they were at the scene!

    It is shameful, and I hope anyone who has ever had a disabled family
    member, friend, or loved one will take a stand against this cruel
    harassment of disabled individuals.

    If you need car repair or towing I appeal to you to call anyone except
    this business. Perhaps they need some quiet time to reflect on compassion
    and humanity!

    gentleman using a walker fall to his knees when the blast sounded.
    There
    were many reactions to the blast, startled cries, etc.



    The manager of CSDD proceeded to the open garage door at Jim's Towing
    and
    asked if they thought such a prank was funny. She asked to speak to
    the
    manager, a gentleman replied, "How about the owner, that's me" They
    said,
    "It must have been a blown tire" and laughed. When the manager of
    CSDD
    said she would contact the police the owner asked her if she would
    like
    the number dialed for her and again laughed.



    The number was not needed, two officers patrolling on bicycles in the
    area
    heard the blast and immediately came to investigate.



    I am appalled that a business owner could support the thoughtless
    prank
    aimed at the disabled residents being served by CSDD. Do they find it

    funny to watch an elderly disabled gentleman fall to his knees in the

    middle of the road out of fear when hearing a loud blast. The
    reaction of
    the young man setting off the M-80 was hysterical laughter.



    I am posting this to appeal to all Monroe County residents. A local

    business owner showing such disregard for the disabled citizens of
    this
    county is inexcusable! I will never frequent this business, and I
    hope
    any of you reading this will do the same, and spread the word. Word
    of
    mouth is a powerful tool. This story can be verified by the police

    department, they were at the scene!



    It is shameful, and I hope anyone who has ever had a disabled family

    member, friend, or loved one will take a stand against this cruel

    harassment of disabled individuals.



    If you need car repair or towing I appeal to you to call anyone except

    this business. Perhaps they need some quiet time to reflect on
    compassion
    and humanity!
