Caution to parents
OK, so here's why parents should be very careful about letting their children surf the net unsupervised. A blog like this you would think would be pretty innocent. Sure, from time to time we get comments we don't necessarily agree with. But hey, that goes with the territory. If you're going to go public with your journey you have to expect that some people will be critical. That goes with the territory. You have to take the good with the bad. We accept that. Like I said before, we really don't want to get into screening comments. We appreciate most of them and like to share them all. We're not going to be like some cable channels and only air the comments we agree with. We share them all. Well, mostly all. The only ones we really delete are the vulgar ones. We had another one tonight. It was very graphic in nature and had nothing to do with the blog. Now why would someone smear a blog with a comment like that is beyond me. Bored, lonely, searching, etc. are some adjectives that come to mind. Someone that is lost maybe. Anyway, since we know this blog is read by some of our friends' kids we did delete that comment. But a warning to parents: even an innocent site like this is subject to some temporary content like that. We will delete it as fast as we can. Like I said, if it's a difference of opinion or a critical comment of our blog...don't have an issue with that. We like the differing opinions. Some are very interesting and are thought provokers. But the ones that are just vulgar and have no purpose...if you see one, please e-mail us. We will delete them. Sorry if you saw that one tonight. Kristi deleted it as soon as she saw it...but copied and pasted it into Microsoft Word so I could read it. As if we don't have enough to deal with...
