"No. Anything that has been sponsored in any way is made clear. Take a look at the Columbus Makes Art series presented by GCAC if you need an example: http://www.columbusunderground.com/tag/columbus-makes-art-presents"

"Can you point us to a news publication that includes a "This article is not paid content" disclaimer at the bottom of every regular news article? I've never seen anything like that."

Hard Hat Photo Tour: Northside Library Branch:
"Really glad to see libraries embracing their role as more than book-providers -- they are truly a community space for meeting, learning, and communicating. This is a wonderful transformation, very excited for the grand opening"

Hard Hat Photo Tour: Northside Library Branch:
"I love libraries, it is just a shame that most times when I go to borrow a CD or DVD they are so scratched up that they don't play. People should respect the items more so that others can enjoy them."

"Why do you visit the site and comment on articles if you believe that's what this site is? It's ironic that you bad mouth it yet continue to give the articles clicks which increases ad revenue."

Hot Chicken Takeover Opening Third Location:
"I can't wait to try this... I've went into the North Market a few different times to try it but every time the line was just way too long. I figure I will just keep trying until I catch the line at a reasonable length... Or I'll try one of their new locations!"

"I love the idea of anything in this space except pizza. Josies is pretty much across the street and Grandma's is a few blocks away. Don't take from these mainstays that have pushed through the years when no one gave a crap about Franklinton."

"Uber driver looking for passenger. I do have to agree that a building in Franklinton looking for a tenant does not seem too newsy. I suspect there are dozens on buildings in that area that could also use tenants with cash for rent and a cool vibe (cool vibe may even be optional in many cases). There is a bit of interest due to this building's prior purported use and the ownership is actively engaged in other positive projects, but it does seem a little Oniony."

New 28-Unit Condo Development Proposed Downtown:
"Very glad to see this."

21 Acre Downtown Development Plan Unveiled:
"While I generally agree with your statement, the very real concern is that if we don't start making affordable housing part of the equation for all neighborhoods now, it won't be habit by the time urban renewal makes it to Franklinton, Weinland Park and similar neighborhoods, There is a very real possibility that much of the population will be priced out of the same neighborhoods we say are affordable now and less than a mile away. It wasn't all that long ago that Italian village was the affordable option for downtown and the Short North. It's affordability has significantly decreased in a very short period of time. Today, Weinland park is the affordable option to Italian Village and Short North but it will lose its affordability at an increasing rate. With the concurrent investment into the UD, we face a possibility that affordability will no longer be a selling point for anything from downtown until maybe North Clintonville save for some of the Grant Park and the Long Street project if I remember correctly? Perhaps I am missing a project (that isn't luxury micro living). That's how we get to a city where finding affordability can be miles away. Frankly, along with giving away the bank in tax credits where they aren't due, I have been pondering lately whether or not the city should be leveraging affordable housing with the awarding of large benefits. I'm not sure how or where similar programs have been implemented. Whether it be a "so many units per building must be affordable," or to get said tax break, you must contribute to a communal affordable housing fund, a combination of that or some other variation. I haven't done enough research on it to know what solutions exists, but it is something we need to address before we get too far into this."
