Welcome to the Idaho News Forum!
Hello, I am Josh Hurley, the site admin. I started this site in 2013 when the Idaho Statesman announced it would no longer allow anonymous commenting on its news stories forcing everyone to register with Facebook if they wanted to comment. I realized many websites were moving this way, requiring one large registration system in the hands of giant corporate advertisers who mine your comments and other data about you and sell it.
This is the reason I launched Idaho News Forum. It should be a place for aggregated news, but also a place for people in Idaho to discuss Idaho’s news without those thoughts being sold to the highest bidder and retained forever.
So, this is your site. It is a place for you to aggregate stories you care about. It is a place for you to comment on them.
Please keep it civil and make yourself at home!
