Good Friday, all.
It has come to my attention that “flagging” someone else’s post is the new “high five.” And while I love high fives (pre-pandemic) just as much as the next guy, “flagging” posts comes with extra homework; as a result, our staff is having to constantly clear out the moderators inbox and sift through what should stay on stay on the site, and what is truly egregious and must be deleted. It’s a labor of love, but labor, I suspect, is better spent creating content for the masses.
As such, I am dropping in and pinning this message as a friendly reminder to review our commenting policy. Please be mindful of what you post on the website, and please also be mindful of what you flag. We want this to be an inclusive community, and auto-flagging someone whose opinion diverges from yours defeats that mission. There’s a way to have healthy discourse without going full Ed Hochuli.
Thanks and Go Pokes!
