VOTE NOW IN THE POLL TO HAVE YOUR SAY!
Since I began this blog one question more than any other has garnered more attention, with some readers having raised concerns about one issue in particular - the fact we allow visitors to post anonymous comments. This question now needs to be addressed by you – the reader and “anonymous” poster.I allow it because I want people to feel free to leave comments without worry of perceived reprimand by who ever.
As of late the shield of Anonymous has taken on a shape on this blog which we have seen before – cruel, mean, slanderous and attacking in nature.The attacks have been directed towards me mainly, with many questions as to why I should be given a shot at Team Canada or who do think I am and why should I receive “special consideration” and the list goes on. I have seen many others attacked on here as well, Joe, Wendy , CCA, Jim, Bruce, Eric and so on.
Well, at this time I am left with few choices regarding a policy on this term – Anonymous.So, to be fair to all I have created a POLL at the right side for all of you to answer.
Should the Blog 2 continue to allow Anonymous postings?*
And yes you did see a * at the end; which means a few rule changes to what will or will not be posted!So, the poll will be simple – No or Yes with changes. Or YES no changes
I really don’t want to do it but far too many people are abusing the ability to post under the shield of Anonymous for their personal want to attack.So the * will reflect the following policy:
Should an individual(s) wish to post a comment on the Blog 2 that comment shall remain to be published at the discretion of the publisher. Also; as prior policy should that comment has any foul language it shall not be published.If the comment; at the discretion of the publisher consider to contain - ill mannered, slanderous, libel, aspersion, backbiting, backstabbing, belittlement, black eye, calumny, defamation, depreciation, detraction, disparagement, lie, misrepresentation, muckraking, mud-slinging, obloquy, scandalise, or a slam then that comment will not be posted.
I understand this may reduce the amount of comments which shall be submitted but I think it in the best interest of the sport and the blog that this policy be enacted.I want to give you the reader the opportunity to not only vote on it but leave comment or suggestions on the policy.
VOTE NOW to have your say.
