Charlie Kraebel was right. Running a blog is not as easy as I thought it would be and I have made mistakes by not fact checking who posts on this blog, resulting in a series of personal attacks that should never have been allowed. I can’t un-ring that bell. What I can do is enforce a set of rules.
I defend freedom of speech but my blog is not a platform for freeform personal attacks. Elected and public officials are fair game when the comments relate to their job performance.
• You must give your full name and some type of verification before posting on this blog.
• Keep the conversation on the posted topics.
• You may not agree with my opinions or content of my blog. If you find this is the case, do not attack the administrator. Get over it or go elsewhere.
• I will delete comments that I consider in violation of these rules.
