WalpoleNews.com shuts down

March 19, 2015

WalpoleNews.com and its popular, often-controversial online forum WalpoleWords, shut down for good today.

In an email to 180, editor Tom Glynn did not offer a reason for the shutdown. He arrived at the decision to shut down the site several months ago but declined to elaborate on the decision-making process. The site has largely been inactive since December.

Glynn, a former editor of The Walpole Times, launched WalpoleNews.com in 2006, as a successor to the popular website Walpole.org, where WalpoleWords was originally housed. Throughout the site’s run, the site’s technical end was primarily overseen by former Walpole.org webmaster Gerry Nelson.
