About: Commenting

What with switching to WordPress, some of my loyal readers/commenters may notice something a bit different when they go to leave their two cents:

There is no “anonymous” function… per se.

I gather this is just a feature of WordPress, and I hope it doesn’t discourage people from commenting. I love your feedback, I honestly do. Without, it’s kind of like I’m just sitting here typing away to myself. And you know what they say about people who talk/type to themselves.

It’s not very nice, whatever it is.

So a couple of things:

  1. You don’t HAVE to use your real name. Pseudonyms are fine.
  2. WordPress DOES require an email address. If you insist on making this up, fine. Be my guest. But I promise you the addresses don’t get published. I looked into it.
  3. If you find my post or opinions controversial, PLEASE don’t be rude. Treat my blog with the same respect you would expect on your own, or if you don’t have your own, at least among your own friends/acquaintances.
  4. If you are interested in keeping up with the discussion of the post you commented on, there’s a little check-box at the bottom underneath the comment form.

Tis all, and happy commenting!

    Jackie, I think you have a fine talent for reviewing trashy television — it seems you’ll have lots of readers, too! You have that Jay Stone ability to be hilarious yet serious at the same time, particularly when panning something awful. Keep up the good work! I knew there was a lot of crap on television, but never considered how much fun one could have writing about it!

    My gosh Carrie! What a beautiful compliment — especially coming from a former prof!!

    Though I have to admit, I can only take so much credit. The show was just too easy to mock 🙂 It was fun though!

    Hey Jackie S Quire,

    This is my first time checking out your blog and I’d love for you to email me back and maybe I could talk to you about your stay in Rankin Inlet? I’m moving up there in a month and would to get as much info as I can from people that have actually BEEN there !!

    Jackie, Do you consider yourself an investigative journalist?
