The blog comments are beginning to become a circus not unlike the Daily Journal forums. While I enjoy the put-downs and sarcasm as much as the next guy, I am asking that those that post do not lose sight of the purpose of this blog.
Whether you are for or against, and that doesn’t matter, please try to add something of substance when you post. Please become a part of the debate, not a distraction from the debate.
A good example of what to do would be Miles Jackson, who comes back with an argument defending his side of the debate. An example of what not to do would be tryagain, who simply calls people names and does nothing at all to defend his position.
Also, in the past month I deleted two comments that did not add to the debate, and were derogatory in nature to specific people. They crossed the line in the opinion of our editorial group. We do not take this task lightly. (And if tryagain wants to cry censorship – a derogatory comment were made against one of your freeholders and another against an employee of your campaign.) Please, you are free to post anything as long as it is pertinent and you have substantiating or corroborative documentation, or if it is public knowledge.
So please, let’s be civil, and let’s have fun, and let’s try to stay out of the sewer when possible.
