At Steven’s suggestion, I thought it a good time to address “Comments” from our readers – or, more to the point, the distinct lack of them! In recent years, we’ve had some problems with comments disappearing & I am one of those unfortunate members to experience this previously before being hired onto the team. I suspect there are some out there who have also come across this & have stopped posting as a result. We appreciate how frustrating & seemingly rude it seems, to have one’s thoughtful input vaporized, never to appear. It makes readers feel disconnected from the website & team here.
Some of these issues have been software related & the support team behind the site are well aware of this problem. Some of the problems are related to users commenting on multiple posts in a short period of time, resulting in anti-spam filters built into the website software blocking them. To help get a grip on this recurring problem & to keep comments civilized & on-topic, all comments posted require moderation by us before approval, which results in your comments appearing on the site. Please be ensured we all regularly monitor comments & try to approve & get appropriate comments online as quickly as possible.
To get approval, we ask users to please be civil, on-topic & refrain from slander or libelous statements. Discussion, debate, argument, observations about broadcasting, corrections, inquiries, constructive criticism, additional info – welcome!! Obvious spam, political debates/rhetoric, world issues, personal attacks, divisiveness or excessive foul language will get denied & users flagged. There are plenty of websites on the Internet for these topics. Puget Sound Media is NOT one of them!
We value our readers & want to hear from YOU! The more input & discussion to evolve on our site, the richer the experience for all, regardless of your favorite topic or feature. The request lines are open & we’re waiting to read what YOU have to say!
