Once again, we find several complaints about this blog not being a welcoming place, not curbing the anger/passion/frustration of comments and not being neutral.
Again, this is a community blog. We could force people to register to comment but we don't. You just sign in and away you go. All are welcome.
Charlie and I have viewpoints. We sometimes just report and we sometimes put in our viewpoints. We sometimes write headlines to spark interest, not a fight. (I personally sometimes write headlines just to tweak some noses.)
As Charlie pointed out elsewhere, we put a lot of information in here that is not in line with our own viewpoints. We didn't have to put up the support for Enfield petition. Could have just ignored it like it didn't exist. But no, we put it up and even put the link. If we wanted to only support our views, we certainly would not do that.
We obviously don't have the time and space to put every single thing happening in our district but yes, most district-wide events/actions get a place.
We give credit when it is due whether it's the district, Stand, LEV or anyone else.
This is not supposed to be a neutral place for dry discussion. It gets lively and loud and snarky and yes, sometimes disrespectful (and we try to call that out every time we see it).
No one needs to comment on this thread about what they do or do not feel about this blog. I put this out just to be clear: It's not going to change.
What's on your mind today?
I'm off to a press conference with Dan Satterberg myself and I'll let you know who does or does not get charged in Pottergate.
