I've heard and read the furor of some of the regular readers of this blog. They have taken the time, and the far-too-demanding requirements of the system just to be able to post a comment. I respect all of your comments. It is a wonderful opportunity for us to express some democratic rights and principles. I thank you for your comments. Please know that they are welcomed by me.
I have no control over what comments appear or make the "final cut." Heck, I don't even know how the system works to accept some comments and "deep six" other comments. It seems that both righties and lefties have voiced complaints. Often they see me as the cynical tyrant who expunges their offerings. Wrong! I do not OK or deny a single comment, and I never have ...nor do I intend to do that.
I have expressed my dismay about this to the people who run the system for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
It may help to soothe your anger to know that I am personally disgusted that this happens. Frankly, there are several things that I find outmoded, alarming, and unprofessional about the way things are run with these on-line blogs. If you have a complaint, send it to JSOnline.
Which side complains more about it? I get more complaints from the liberals/progressives. But that does not mean that this is indicative of the total picture. I have no way of knowing if the newspaper's on-line NOW staff receive any complaints. Just know: it ain't me deciding if your comment makes it or doesn't.
You and I have established a bond. It may not be a friendly bond, or a political bond, or a bond of similar perspectives, but it is a connection. Thanks for reading. Thanks for commenting.
