Commenting Guidelines

Posted: May 9, 2010 in Commenting Guidelines
  1. I’m looking for commentors who will contribute well thought out responses and add their own innovative ideas to the discussion.
  2. I’m not looking for ranting, raving or emotional venting. There are other blogs out there you can do that on.
  3.  I will be moderating all comments, so please be patient if your comment does not appear immediately.
  4. Comments that contain personal attacks, mockery, or speculation about the motives of others will not be approved.  Threats of any kind will be reported to the authorities immediately.
  5. Respectful disagreement is welcome and encouraged.  Please take the time to qualify your points of disagreement with supporting details.
  6. If you make a comment and someone disagrees with your idea, their disagreement does not erase your original idea. There is no need to answer except to clarify or offer new material.
  7. Whether you use your real name or choose a fictional name, write as if you are sitting in the same room with the person you are responding to, and as if everyone in the world will see your post and know you wrote it!

    Very nice Blog, Tim. Have you ever considered running for Alderman? I think with your good common sense, and level headed ideas, you could make a very nice addition to the council. You are mild mannered and well spoken and you really think things through. If you were in my ward, I would vote for someone like you, and I think you are what this city needs in such a position. A young, well balanced and committed individual who is willing to find the answers to help this city get through these tough times. And one that would work well with others to make good things happen.

    Thanks for the kind words Karin. The thought has crossed my mind, but right now it’s definately not on the radar for me. My hands are pretty full right now, especially with 4 young kids and all. I’m actually glad you brought it up because I wondered if anyone might have thought I started the blog with political ambitions in mind, and that is certainly not the case.

    Actually, I think in some ways we are able to serve the community more freely just as regular citizens. One certianly doesn’t necessarily have to hold public office to be a leader and make a difference. Your excellent work with the Neighborhood Watch/Association is proof of that!
