In Arkansas, the state from which I post, home schooling is protected by law. Home schooling parents are a protected group.
I have researched today what to do about violent content in the comments.
I think any attack on a commenter is inexcusable. Every commenter on my site is a guest, and as such, is at my mercy.
My commenters need to feel they are safe at my site.
Yesterday’s post, which is part of a 4-part series beginning here, has been published in a popular homeschooling magazine (circulation, 22,000) and my editor printed it word for word, so I do not feel it was an unwise post. The WordPress crew is welcome to correct me on that, in private. I will respond, accordingly.
I have done all I can to make peace, but so far have received no response. I cannot afford to wait longer.
Sadly, for the first time in two years, I must remove a comment from yesterday’s post.
I welcome disagreement.
But hate speech directed toward my commenters will not be protected on this site.
All readers are welcome, welcome, welcome.
All commenters are welcome, welcome, welcome.
And anyone who is driven to hatred by reading here is welcome to turn the page.
