Housekeeping: Changing Comment Evaluation
Dear Beloved Readers,
You might notice that we have changed the way we “do” comments. In the past, a comment from a new reader first had to be approved by the administrators (and now, the editor — yours truly). Once the new reader’s comment was approved, the new reader was then free to post comments without any sort of approval on our part. Unfortunately, with a growing audience, some rather disturbing comments have “snuck in” under the radar, despite the fact that Barb, Jeff C and myself practically live on this blog. As a result, there have been some who have been hurt and left feeling unsafe on our watch. We, as a team, have decided to monitor the comments more closely. EVERY comment will now be approved by our team. It is priority that our readers find a safe haven here on this blog. We all know what it is like to feel unsafe.
This is the last place we wish for you to feel unsafe.
All that being said, we will be able to approve of comments quickly (again, we live on this blog), and we pledge to not edit or change anything within the comments without first obtaining permission. Don’t let this throw you off. We are constantly thinking about and discussing ways to improve this ministry.
We hope you all know how valuable you are to us and how much we desire to minister to every soul who comes across our blog. Thank you for bearing with us as we learn and grow.
Merry Christmas, dear readers!
