Letter To The Hater (And A Call For Contributors)

There’s a certain bloke who keeps posting comments that haven’t made it onto the big board, and then posts further comments to excoriate us for not letting the first ones slip through.

So it seems like a fine time to remind him, and whoever else might care, that we have a terms of use policy, that includes points along the lines of:

  1. Don’t be an ass. This should be enough for most people, but if you need clarification, keep reading.
  2. Racism, bigotry, threats of violence and other hate-filled language is strictly prohibited.
  3. No personal attacks or revealing of private information is tolerated. This is grounds for immediate banning.
  4. Keep foul language to a minimum.

If you want to make a point, even one that entails (informed) criticism of something, including the PDD, feel free to do it.  You can post a comment, or even contribute a whole post in the Side Blog!  Please just do it without the ad hominems, and without too much talk of who might be inserting what into who else’s various orifices.

If you’d like to write for us more regularly, please shoot us an email.

    Things are a bit more wide open over on Facebook, and someone just took advantage to put up a very ad-hominem fake Fan page targeting a well-known local. I was surprised to see at least one of the fans who signed on.

    It’s one thing to publicly characterize someone you only ever see on TV as a waste receptacle, another to do it to someone you might easily pass on the sidewalk downtown.

    Maybe it’s just true that great minds run in the same channel, or maybe your certain bloke is busy on multiple fronts, but either way it’s emitting lots of heat and little light. Do we suddenly not have any *real* problems around here?
