I am never entirely sure why this happens, but the problems with the comments have really mounted over the last 7-10 days. I am very concerned about this as a matter of stewardship of the site.
(1)There has been a tendency to import other agendas into a thread which are the concern of the poster, but not of the thread.
(2) The number of posts which express anger, bitterness, frustration and grumpiness without a balance of Christian charity and in a number of cases Christian hope has gone way up.
(3) We still have people who engage too much in ad hominem attacks or unnecessarily personal comments.
(4) Some individual are dominating certain threads to a unnecessary extent.
Please read my previous statements about the comments found here. Also, do take the time to read over and pray over your comments before you submit them. Consider taking a break from commenting if some of these concerns apply to you.
