Comments on my blogPosted: February 22, 2019
I have had three people email me in the last couple days to tell me their comment(s) were not posted on my blog and asking if I had a problem with what they were saying. I have had a lot of traffic on the blog and approve almost every comment. Many people designate their comments with DO NOT POST, and I move those comments to a separate mail box to try to avoid accidentally posting them online. Some comments have made their way into that mailbox and sat waiting approval. I apologize. I try to play it safe with posts people want kept private. If you prefer, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. And please, if you have a tip, call the tip line too!!!
Then there are the freaky, make-no-sense, sometimes borderline-threatening posts that I never post. I will not scare away legitimately interested people with some of the stuff I have received. It’s unnerving and unhelpful. If you aren’t coherent, wait to comment until you are.
If you commented, sound half-way coherent and wanted to weigh in, I did not delete your post or make some judgment that I will not post it. In other cases, comments have been showing up twice–once with a screen name and once with a real name. I try to post only the screen name comment.
I am really hoping there isn’t any kind of interference with my computer like there has been in the past and that this is just a function of high traffic on the blog and the safety net I have for the “DO NOT POST”-ers. If I sound paranoid, I can tell you it is warranted. And quite a few others can as well.
If you don’t see your comment posted, you can email me and I will double-check. Or feel free to post again. Double-check to see how your name is showing. Most people don’t have a problem using their real names, but if you do that isn’t a problem. I can always go back and edit it out if it’s an issue. I also have my hands full and I don’t get a salary like the guy answering the tip line. Be patient and try the tip line until you get through. I have heard from many sources that it has been very hard to get through. And you won’t necessarily get a call back very quickly.
I will get back to you as soon as I can. Many, many people have asked for clarification, information and documents. We are still recovering from all the media exposure which, as important as it is, takes a lot out of people who are close to the kids who were murdered.
