I’VE ALWAYS THOUGHT that this little place was a small personal website. It doesn’t seem rational, but I’ve thought that you knew that I was the sole advisor of the site.
I’ve thought that since it was my site, I could delete any messages that suggested ideas that differed with the strange ideals (my personal ideals) that I thought might lift readers from the conventional to something that felt loftier, more fun. If you didn’t know, I must tell you now that all this time I’ve been screening (deleting) a fair number of comments that didn’t quite fit my taste.
Now I’ve heard from a thoughtful reader that this is not fair. That there’s an informal Internet Courtesy that requires almost anyone with almost any ideas to write what they wish on websites.
Of course I don’t agree. If you feel that this is true, though, that I should allow most any comments to be published here, please let me know. If most of you agree, I’ll thank you for the wonderful comments you’ve already sent, delete the website, and send my apologies for violating the Courtesy.
It will not be the first time that I’ve felt like a ferret blown by a hurricane and raised by squirrels…so much to learn of kindness to others!
