I like to think this blog encourages open, honest and civil dialogue between people of faith, atheists and everything in between. I try to make sure that I don’t personally attack people who post on this blog, and I welcome people who think differently than I do – or who flat out disagree with me – to post their comments here.
I pledge never to ban comments on my blog for disagreeing with me. Nor will I ban people who disagree with other people who comment on this blog. Challenging comments or even comments I personally disagree with will appear on this blog and that won’t change.
Now, if I find someone abusing other people on this blog, warnings may happen and if those warnings are ignored, then a banning may occur.
However, I’d like to point out that I have never banned someone from this blog or any other one that I’ve owned in the past. The free exchange of ideas and information is part of what I want this blog to stand for. Banning or moderating comments so they don’t appear on this blog will only be done as a last resort…unless you’re an annoying solicitor who just wants to drop a link to the products you’re trying to sell. In that case, to the spam filter for you.
I’ve noticed an increasing amount of blogs that moderate, delete or ban commenting and that’s definitely not the vision I had of this blog when I first started posting on WordPress. I’ll close up shop before I let that happen in my tiny corner of the Internet.
Those of you who do comment, I want to thank you once again. You guys and gals rock!
