Dear Pickering Posters,
As you are all aware, I haven’t the time to spend moderating comments on this site. That’s a pity because the comments section is probably the best part of this blog. Unfortunately, our policy of freedom of speech can be misinterpreted as “Free for all.”
That isn’t in anyone’s best interest, as posters who engage in anti-social behaviour only serve to bring the blog into disrepute and crush our credibility.
I have also spoken with a number of people who would like to post but feel intimidated. You may write off these people as snowflakes, but at the end of the day, they have a right to be heard too. If a few loose canons are driving away potential commenters, that is just not fair.
Recently therefore, I have accepted an offer from a medical professional of impeccable credentials to moderate the site and bring some decorum to the comments section.
Nurse Ratched is firm, but very fair. She will not be canning anyone for their opinions. Left, right, up, down, whatever- we may not agree with you, but feel happy to share.
What really gets her reaching for the electrodes however, are things like gratuitous foul language and personal attacks.
This isn’t Women’s Weekly. We don’t mind a few swear words or off-colour jokes. I spent most of my life on construction sites, so I’ve pretty much heard it all.
However, excessive swearing just for the sake of it drags the whole place down into the gutter and the good nurse tells me she won’t stand for that.
The other thing which get’s her panties in a knot, are personal attacks. Post your opinions, disagree vehemently with other people’s opinions - but GET INTO PERSONAL ATTACKS ON OTHER POSTERS and she assures me that there’s no way you’ll be watching the goddam World Series.
This blog is here for all of us. Some of us put quite a bit of effort in to keeping it going. We do that because we believe it is vitally important in the present situation.
Those of you who see it as your own personal playground to vomit all over, will have the good nurse to deal with.
Currently, posters who are banned can come back on. We are working on upgrading the site which will change things dramatically. Nurse Ratched tells me she is looking forward to throwing the switch.
I would suggest keeping on her good side. After all, she tells me she is good friends with your mother.
Thanks for your understanding
