Some Ground Rules

I really appreciate all of the people posting on this blog. However, I have already received some complaints over the phone about some lines being crossed in the comments section, especially the name-calling. Hence, two comments today were edited for content. I probably invited some of it with the somewhat blue headline, so I’ll try to watch myself in the future. The supposed fun of having a blog is to allow ourselves more humor and “edge” than most newspaper stories usually allow. But until I see basic respect ruling the day among the commenters, I’m going to moderate more strictly than I have before. Just a warning. Hopefully, we can continue the dialogue and even have some fun while doing it. Thanks for listening.

  1. Hey, Chris D –

    What’s up w/my post of 10/7 at 9:28 AM?

    Sheesh – – you try to send some kudos in Artz’ direction and somehow get “held for moderation”. .. ..

    There’s absolutely nothing therein that could qualify as being objectionable (except perhaps my spelling and grammatical errors!) – please let me know if you feel differently.

  2. Hi bbox,

    Your comment now is up. I’m not sure why it wasn’t automatically approved. Sorry ’bout that. But thanks for letting me know.

  3. Hey, Chris D –

    Yet another . .

    Checkout my post of 10/10 at 12:27 PM

    Appears to be stuck for “moderation” – –

    Please let me know what I’m doing wrong.

  4. Hi bbox,

    Your comment is up on the website. Sorry again. The only commonality between your two posts that got held up “for moderation” is that they both had two web links. That might set off our spam filter for some reason. In the meantime, I’m going to increase how many times I check the comments moderator page, so at least if it happens again, there won’t be such a long lag time. Hope that helps. Thanks for your patience.
