Open Forum (6/2-6/8)

Posted by Dave Fratello on Monday, June 2nd, 2008 at 5:57am.

Today we launch a new experiment at MBC – the "Open Forum" thread.

We'll ask readers to post their random musings, news clips and off-topic ideas here, and let the debates unfurl as they will. Our plan is to start a new thread like this each Monday.

Your blog author is not terribly interested in moderating blog comments. You'll see less comment-deletion in the Open Forum as a result. Not zero – less. We'd still like to see this forum retain a semblance of respectful dialogue, even when the issues get heated.

In exchange, your blog author will now more regularly demand that comments on the main posts be on-topic. First we'll gently remind, then we'll insist, and then we'll delete comments unrelated to an MBC story.

Guess what, dear readers? How this works out depends on you.
