My concern is as follows: I have noticed more and more comments (although they are still, thankfully, few in number) that are just negative with no value to the topic at hand. These negative comments not only distracts me from the conversation but also deters me from posting additional comments (and I can imagine it is deterring some of you from posting additional comments as well.)
Moreover, I notice that many of these negative comments are being posted under "Anonymous". I enabled the "Anonymous" posting feature because there are many of us unable to log-in with a blogger account, not so a few visitors can anonymously attack other posters or make rude comments. (I should also note, that the majority of "Anonymous" posters really have been and are fantastic!)
So this is my plea for common courtesy...
- Please don't post negative (or questionable) comments. (I hate the idea of "policing" this site by deleting negative comments with no added value.) If you are upset, please frame your point in a clear, logical manner without getting personal.
- Please don't assume the worst in the comments. (Sometimes what we write doesn't always come across the way we intended it to.) :)
- Please don't respond to negative (or questionable) comments. Just try ignoring it. ;)
