I think it is important for people to have a place where they can express their disagreement as well as draw encouragement from others who agree with them. I would like to have a forum where people can agree to disagree agreeably--and so far it has worked fairly well (give or take a few comments).

I know that any debate will produce heat, and this is a good thing as long as everyone can take the heat without getting angry or hurt. I've been willing to let negative posts against me stand, but I cannot allow attacks against others here--and that includes attacks against people with whom I disagree.

After reviewing today's comments, Kevin and I think it would be a good idea to let things calm down a bit, so we've decided to disable comments for a few days. Your posts are still here--but for right now we're not showing them.

If anyone needs to discuss this or anything else with me, you can reach me at

A very interesting post in light of the tone you had others have taken, pretty much from the start.

My wife thought that my comments (on AR-Talk) were a bit out of line. I don't believe they were and I don't believe what I've said he was attacking anyone (not sure if you're even referring to me).

But, Dwayna while I do not share your view here (i.e. throwing things away), this certainly doesn't mean I don't like you. If that was the case (and I don't know if you feel this way or not), but there are plenty of people on this blog that do not like each other.

We do need to be able to take some criticism, especially, if we are going to dish it out.

I have been very disappointed with what I'm seeing on this blog. I'm not going to put the link in my trash been, but I do hope, as Jill has stated, that the tone (and not just attitude) changes.
