From time to time, it becomes necessary for me to remind readers about the rules for commenting on The Gossips of Rivertown. I monitor all comments, and I am generally lenient about the comments I publish. Some readers may think I am too lenient, but I believe in giving people a platform, and for some, commenting on Gossips is that platform. I'm not so thin-skinned that I reject comments that criticize me or my perceived opinions or politics, but I draw the line at comments that do nothing but directly criticize another commenter. Gossips is a blog that aspires to serious journalism. It is not a chat board.
