That Comment Thing

Recently, we changed our comment system and unfortunately that removed the previous comments including one from someone who called us a jackass.  We left it up as we really don’t care and also as a celebration of free speech.  Besides, we know who did it and that “voice” is well known.  

However, we do very much care about freedom of speech, applied responsibly and with respect to one’s neighbors.  We also strongly support our colleague and fellow blogger Kurt at the Hoboken Journal who we note has honored a free exchange of ideas and somehow found himself in the middle of nonsense perpetuated by others who need to take a strong long look in the mirror.  Although we don’t know the facts that led to the Hoboken Journal going on hiatus, we consider it a strong loss to our community.  No matter what your view on any issue or concern of the day in this town we love, Kurt built a site dedicated to Hoboken permitting voices from all sides, and along with it, a noteworthy audience.  

For reasons of liability and those who care about such things, our comment policy is now posted below at the jump.  It’s our strong preference for people to self-modulate their voice and to focus on an issue and not use the internet to attack others. 

If you haven’t done so, you can leave a public note or email of support to Kurt at The Hoboken Journal.  We look forward to his speedy return and continued contribution to our community.  

Mile Square View is my blog. It is truly not a forum for debate, mudslinging or name calling—and of course directing such to the host is not excluded. My only goal is to give back to the town I love.  And to remain America’s most beloved pony.

This site is rated R.  You may confess the worst thoughts about yourself.  You can get if off your chest about how good your boyfriend has been to you and how you still cheat on him all the time.  Or that you are not nice to your parents or siblings.  But if the language is in poor taste, it risks being edited or deleted.  It probably won’t but why push it.

For future reference, Mile Square View reserves the right to:

  • Edit comments for content, including removing comment signatures (though I’ll try really hard not to edit your grammar, spelling or punctuation).
  • Delete offensive comments and attacks (deemed such by Da Horsey).
  • Block offensive commenters
  • Delete spam and suspected spam with extreme prejudice, including posting under multiple handles, re: various names. One per person.
