Here at Our Thoughts, behind the scenes, we have been discussing what appears to be a decline in not only quantitative comments but qualitative comments. We have pinpointed what we see as being the causes. In addition, we have determined in order to address those causes, we need to implement some policies regarding commenting.
Enter our new commenting policy.
We encourage all new and longtime readers to familiarise themselves with the new policies. By adhering to them, we can all help make Our Thoughts a better place to come, chat and learn.
A couple of things to note.
As a result of the policy, past threads created as “open threads” for specific individuals will be deleted. Those persons wanting to post unrelated comments (i.e. use Our Thoughts as their own blog) are encourage to start a blog elsewhere. Blogger.com, for example, allows you to set up a new blog in seconds.
In addition, more comments will be moderated in a hope to address some of the underlying issues. In addition past comments will be purged, but only over time; this will take a while.
Feel free to comment on our new policy, but be aware that this is not a democracy and your comments may not have any effect on how things are administered here.
