I will not post comments that are blatant advertisements. While I know the world of PR is tricky right now, I don’t think the purpose of blog comments is to advertise services/businesses. I think the purpose of comments is to advance discussion on a given topic the blog addresses.

I will also not post comments that are off-topic, don’t add to the discussion of a particular post, or are inflammatory in any matter. If you don’t like my blog, don’t read it and don’t comment on it. Your comments will not be posted. It’s that simple.

I believe that each person who runs/moderates a blog can set out their own policy on commenting, and that any is acceptable for whatever purpose their particular blog serves. This is my blog and my policy, and I will not argue it.

    I’m an Account Rep for the MidCity DC (formerly DC North) community based newspaper. I would like to be notified of new posts via email. I enjoy your blog and often use it as a prospecting tool for that area.

    Thank you,

    I have resided near the corner of 8th and T Streets for 3 years and today I was the unfortunate victim of robbery. 2 young black men in their late teens/early twenties spotted me walking home at 4:55pm as I was texting on my cell phone. They threatened me with a gun and demanded my cell phone. I managed to find an officer who called in the robbery shortly after it happened. He informed me that earlier in the afternoon there were 2 other similar incidents where the same 2 men were involved in Le Droit Park area. I do believe they live in the area as they look familiar. Please everyone be on the look out for these men as they got me in the alley between 8th and 9th and T and S, I was unharmed but still not a fun experience.
