Jason -Incidentally, my comments still do not appear on the post.
First off if you want to enable someone to reopen the comment section of their blog, holier than thou rhetoric isn't going to persuade anyone to do anything. I can't accuse you of anything but let me tell you about this week.
1. I'm going to pull the poll off because of the "lurkers" or "trolls" that spend all day on the internet with nothing better to do than try and get other people's skin. I checked the page one day and there were about 19 votes for one of the questions and in the span of about 15 minutes it jumped to 37. At that time, there was also a comment to be moderated saying "look at the poll..blah..blah..blah" I'm not an idiot, I know you can delete the internet data & refresh the page and you can control a poll.
2. There were people posting under names that can't be verified and anonymously and I had to not allow some comments that were coming through because obscene and inappropriate and others were purely with the intent of flaming. As an intern I help produce the radio show and set up the blog to help the legislators update info on the show etc.. If I didn't have school, work, internship or a life I still wouldn't want to moderate a forum, and the blog isn't set up to be a forum. So you know Jason I wasn't "cherrypicking" comments, I honestly don't care about people's political opinions enough to slant it one way or the other.
When I have more time to set up the comments so I don't have to babysit it I will send you an email. I'm sure you're not the type of person that spends all day on the internet trying to tip polls or gives himself a bunch of "dittos" on a message board or post under different names just to annoy someone so I'm sure when I am able to set it up you can contribute & participate.
I personally think if you cared enough to send an email than you probably are the one trolling and playing with the poll because it was fun to waste someone else's time.
Setting the record straight my ass.
