This blog gets some of the same readers as Ohio Media Watch, but I'm not nearly as popular. But then OMW provides a very valuable service to those who want to keep up on media happenings.
All I want to do is inform, entertain and inspire my small, but loyal, audience.
The other day OMW reported on a radiothon Akron/Canton radio station WKDD was having for Akron Children's Hospital, a facility that's probably touched the lives of almost everyone who reads these words. OMW then received about 24 comments on this particular post, the first by myself. All I posted was a "Well done". Others wanted to question the integrity of the radio station and the owners, Clear Channel. I am not the biggest Clear Channel fan, but I think that some of the rude comments were completely uncalled for. At least when somebody makes allegations like that they could have the guts to sign their names to the comment. OMW wisely closed comments to that article.
I checked again and there were 27 responses before OMW closed the comments. 02/15/07 11:40am
OMW is in the process of making changes to the comment section of his blog, and I don't blame him.
I am more than grateful that most of the comments here are signed by the commentators. And those that are not are civil enough that I don't have to worry about deleting them. Since I've been writing this I have only deleted one comment, and that was a misunderstanding on my part.
