In the past several days, I’ve considered seriously taking this website offline. I’ve been fortunate enough to find a new friend who graciously showed me the misstep I was about to take.
The comments need to be turned around. I’m comfortable with the remarks tossed in my direction, but when people I consider to be community leaders and personal friends prefer to stay away instead of join the conversation, then this becomes pointless for me.
Pseudonyms make us say what we ordinarily wouldn’t in public. That’s fine if what you have to say is really moving or particularly relevant. But if it’s just a personal shot at someone else, then I don’t want it here. Consider that before you hit the Submit Comment button.
I’ve banned a few commentators today in the hopes of restoring order. Please try to be respectful of this website’s “main thing” as well as the requests of our candidates to show support while keeping it civil. You can read their positions on negative comments by clicking the hyperlinks that appear right above the box where you submit your comments.
