I’m increasingly uncomfortable with the tone of some visitors’ comments on some of these posts. Criticize my thoughts, my writings, my observations – I’m ok with that. I don’t know everything, my wife will be quick to tell you I’m not perfect, and I need you the readers to provide the rest of the story.
But please do not insult fellow visitors who comment by calling them ignorant, stupid, etc. Debate and discussion are good and really are key to this blog’s success. Disagree with each other – challenge each other. But this is not the place to dismiss everyone who disagrees with you as being stupid or ignorant.
Several months ago I had to suspend comments and yank others when some visitors thought it was ok to personally attack college students whose ideas for a new convention center were posted on this site. I hated the experience and I don’t want to do it again.
