JEMAIL: Toner, Mike (MC1972) spots a “black hole”


Hi f. John,

After last week’s JJ, I submitted some comments through the “submit items” link/form. I didn’t see it referenced in this week’s issue. You usually seem to be admirable in posting and commenting on submissions, even whe the commenter disagrees with your positions. This also happened one other time a few months ago.

Now, since JJ is solely your effort, I can easily understand that you might decide to “deep six” or “spike” some comments from an unabashed liberal. But this has not been your usual practice. So, I am writing to see if there might be some glitch in your receiving comments through the submission link/form.

I am pefectly comfortable if you exercised editorial judgement in not publishing my comments. Your call as editor and CIC. However I think you’d like to know if there is a problem with receiving input from your “reporters”.

Thanks, as always, for your fine efforts with JJ.

[JR: Apparently there is some kind of WordPress bug that is not notifying me of “feedback”. I’m investigating it now. I see several “feedbacks” that are in the system but I’ve never seen. Thanks for the heads up. As you said, I usually “publish” everything.]
