Open Thread and Diary Rescue

Open Thread and Diary Rescue

I'll be at the jail the rest of the afternoon. Here's an open thread. Just step over the hate-stuff that is really piling up out there in the blogosphere. They manufacture and misrepresent what others write when the others don't share their views. Tolerance? Unfortunately, it's sorely lacking. [More…]

Should you spot a site violator here, just respond to the comment with “site violator” and the commenter's name. I'll take care of the rest when I return. Otherwise ignore them and don't hit back with the same tactics. Don't take the bait. Your response likely will go down the rabbit hole with their objectionable comments.

I'm not talking about those who express a different point of view civilly and without chattering or trying to dominate or hijack threads. I'm talking about those who engage in personal attacks, insults, name-calling or purposely spreading misinformation.

A word to our regular commenters as well: Please refrain from personal and character attacks on each other and on the candidates and their families. If you can't express yourself without resorting to personal attacks or race or gender-baiting, you're on the wrong site.

BTD and I take this election seriously. We are trying to inform readers while sharing our individual points of view. Personal attacks, ridicule, name-calling and race-baiting lowers the level of discourse on the site. It's unacceptable regardless of who you support.

We've got new reader diaries up — check them out and recommend those you like. They may or may not coincide with the views of TalkLeft.
