There has been some criticism of my failure to censure some of the comments this blog receives.
We have received almost 20,000 comments over the years.
My recollection is that of these one was censored when some of its profanity was removed.
None have ever been re-ordered to give or deny preference.
It is interesting that comments often have no relation to the subject of the daily post. I chalk that up to people wanting to have their voices heard.
The blog has always been open to posting guest articles. We seldom get submissions. Maybe that takes too much effort.
Recently we have had a few appearances of Silence Dogood. There are things afoot over at the city that will take our focus away from her/him for a while.
Mr. Franklin probably did have a better explanation for what has been happening:
A Man who differs from another in Opinion sets himself above him in his own Judgment, and in several Particulars pretends to be the wiser Person. This is a great Provocation to the Proud Man, and gives a keen Edge to what he calls his Zeal.
Let’s try harder to express our differences of opinion without being nasty to others.
Thank you for your continued interest
We deserve better
