Comment Policy + Examples of How Not to Get Your Comment Published

I publish all dissenting opinions that are written respectfully.  Comments containing insults, accusations, name-calling, curse words, those intended to incite a verbal brawl, and those written in a hateful tone (which has to be overly pronounced to even be discerned in typed word) will not be published. If an individual then sends more comments, irate that their first comments weren’t published, they risk having an ad taken out in their local newspaper to publish all of their hate along with any other identifying information we can find. Don’t say something in a comment that you wouldn’t want your entire community to know you said, including your boss, your clients, and your patients.

If you’re going to spew hate, at least have the sense to do it with a fake e-mail address like James C at

What follows is a small selection from my trash bin of model garbage comments:

  1. I appreciate your educated & sarcastically funny approach to these topics. I’m sure you get this all of the time, but I just found this too funny not to request that you consider writing a post/response to this……
    On the babycenter website there is an article titled “8 medications not to give your preschooler”….warning parents of the dangers of medicating their children with Advil and OTC cold medications…..
    “In addition to side effects like drowsiness or sleeplessness, upset stomach, and a rash or hives, a child can suffer serious effects such as rapid heart rate, convulsions, and even death. Every year, thousands of children end up in emergency rooms across the nation after swallowing too much cough and cold medicine.”
    Does anyone else see the irony in this?! I had to laugh as I next clicked on the link to their advice on vaccines. Many links were provided to help parents figure out a vaccine schedule for their child, etcetera, but a list possible side effect was nowhere to be found. Really now?! People HAVE to be picking up on this by now, right?!
