- Try, if you can or are comfortable, to link to Facebook or some other social media profile to show that you are a real person and not an anonymous voice.
- Full names are much much more preferable.
- For suggestions/ideas/improvements get in touch.
- Also try to shift off-topic conversations to Open Threads, which BP will start regularly hosting at least on a weekly basis.
I feel (God save us all from my new-found editorial interest) we need to have more Value-Added conversations on the threads as opposed to death screeds against this sect or the other. What is the point in trading in hate (even though admittedly its great for viewership figures) when we should be actively engaging our minds and time on solution provision and ideas generation. We’re all relatively intelligent, well-educated individuals and I feel the comments boards could really do with more mutual respect and less powerless tirades against bete noires (whether they be monotheism, GHQ or whatever). Also I dislike the defeatist attitudes prevalent and the blame game; life isn’t so bad (it’s actually pretty great for most of humanity) and we should be actively working to make it better; so some positivism works (even though again good news just doesn’t sell and is fairly boring).
