Unmoderated comment section available nearby

Those of you who have read this blog for any length of time have probably noticed a shortage of uncivil comments.  That’s because this blog frowns on ad hominum remarks, unless made by this blogger, of course. The main focus of this blog is on facts and on improving the quality of life.

This approach seems to be popular with most readers, but it leaves some irate commenters feeling that they have not had a chance to be heard. Well, there is a solution. There is now a place where those whose comments are not being posted here can say what is really on their minds.

The Blue Ridge Muse, owned and operated by good friend Doug Thompson has some of the most spectacular photography and provocative articles of any blog in the area.

He is also a public-spirited blogger who hosts an unmoderated comment section where conflicting views are discussed with no holds barred. So, if you ever feel that you are not getting all of the story here, visit the Blue Ridge Muse.

If you like excitement, arguments, and an insight into the hidden stories of Floyd with your morning coffee, you can get it all there, hot and steaming right out of the tap.

Genial host Doug keeps the discussion from getting out of hand, but just barely. So, if you want to kick start your day with a little excitement, visit the Blue Ridge Muse.

    The Blue Ridge Muse sure did get a lot of rants from your Floyd X-Press Mart article. I do think both sides are probably overheated a bit by this point.

    But on the otherhand I don’t take receipts myself and have not gone inside a gas station to pay in years. I may have even left when it says “please see attendant” because I don’t look at the screens after I swipe my card. (Note: I don’t live in Floyd)

    Now I know I should check the screen and maybe go inside when that message appears, but if no message appears or the machine resets I will still drive off. It is what I have done for years. If the machine has an issue they should tape over the credit slots or run full-service. That is what my station has done for years and during winter full-service is a blessing in itself!

    Hopefully this whole thing will blow over quickly and the gas station will fix their equipment or post some signs that people using the problematic machines need to go inside to pay.

    I can understand David being upset. I am a little more shocked at the number of people angry with David for posting his opinions. I think that denying them their voice in your blog might just infuriate them more and make them more worked up than just letting them rant here. Either way I think you owe your friend over at the Blue Ridge Muse a dinner and a bottle of wine to make up for all the posters you sent that way. *grin*

    What’s going in over at Doug’s site right now makes a pretty good case for moderation. It’s like a kindergarten sandbox on a bad day. I’m not sure how Doug would react if someone treated his wife this way; not so much in regard to the original “misunderstanding” but the abuse by blog posters. If someone called my wife stupid, I’d have a bone to pick with ’em. I believe both sides of the original issue might have excercised more restraint but some of these commentators definitely need to learn some manners. By the way– one of the definitions of “interloper” is “a person who meddles in others’ affairs.” Hmmm…
