Your comments, please!


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!
