OPINION: Why The Blocked Comments?

Bloggers, particularly candidates for public office, shouldn't block feedback when they post.

 

Recently, a few people have posted blogs on Bloomfield Patch that don’t allow for comments. Since two of these people are candidates for public office, I think that shouldn’t be allowed. The content of their blogs aren’t at issue, but the process where a candidate can post their agenda and block feedback is antithetical to a blog.

I urge you to either require bloggers (or at least candidates for public office) to have their blogs open to comment or not allow those blogs to be posted. I understand this is an on line publication with different rules than conventional print newspapers but I really don’t believe this practice is acceptable either way.

Neal Charness

My support for Mrs. Greenwell rests on her tenacity. She champions her ideas in the face of outrageous criticisms even though her ideas have merit for discussion. Often when ones' ideas are met with compulsive criticism by a few it means you have touched the Achillea heel of their comfortable status quo. Vote for Jennifer Greenwell for the 2 year board seat, she is a candidate who is unafraid to discuss new ideas. A vote for Jennifer Greenwell is a vote for fiscal sanity. A vote for Jennifer Greenwell is the right vote for our district.

Punch in a numerical code and your number won't appear on the recipient's caller ID box or screen. You can block the display of your phone number or ask your phone company to do it. Thanks. Regards, http://www.mbathesis.biz/our-professional-mba-thesis-service/

Many such services allow for users to log into a blog comment hosting service using social network profile credentials such as those of Facebook Connect, Yahoo!, Google, LinkedIn, MySpace, etc. Such services may also have an effect upon instances of comment spam, as prior registration with comment hosts may be the only means by which to make comments onto many blogs.

Consider the location and span of your winery. Because grapes grow in specific conditions, it is not practical to relocate the operation of your winery, but you can decide where and how to connect with customers. Thanks. Regards, http://www.inboundseovancouver.ca
