A simple wish — and you can all help

December 30, 2011 - Per Peterson
My wish for the new year is a simple one — that all the people who post in our comments section put some thought into your posts and stay on topic. Please. Stop going after one another. You don’t even know who the people you’re going after are. This isn’t a “can’t we all just get along” request; this is a plea to stop making yourself looks like fools. Of course, there are plenty of posters out there who offer up some good feedback, and we really appreciate those of you who make valid points, whether you agree with something we wrote or not. We value your opinions and thoughts, but for the life of me I can’t understand why some of you continue to take shots at anonymous people; some out there, it seems, enjoy making comments just to get under another person’s skin. Why? Make a resolution, people, to stop doing this. If it helps, just pry yourself away from your keyboard and go out and get some exercise, or do something with your family. That’s a good resolution right there. Repeat after me: “I will spend less time on the computer this year.” I know a lot of you good people are cynical, and I can appreciate that, I’m cynical, too — it’s hard not to be sometimes. But let’s try to turn those frowns upside down. Next time you post, put some thought into it. Debate is good, name calling and finger pointing is a waste of time (haven't you learned that from our elected officials)? Have a happy new year everyone.
