Our comment threads are extremely active here at Lamorinda Patch. Many of you appear to still be confused by how they work.
First, the comments expressed under our stories are the sole responsibility of the poster and are not to be confused with our stories, which are clearly marked.
Second, the posters are your neighbors, like it or not, and are not employed by Lamorinda Patch.
Third, the opinions expressed in comment threads are just that -- the opinion of the poster.
Fourth, if you feel the comment exceeds the clearly and oft-repeated standards of "conduct" here at Lamorinda Patch, "Flag It" so we can find it more quickly among the hundreds of comments we get.
Remember, the comment must violate one of the : it cannot be profane, personally invasive, threatening or intimidating, or qualify as an attempt to "hijack" the comment thread and take it in another direction. DO NOT flag a comment just because you don't agree with the author's position.
Remember, the EDITOR here has a DELETE key and he isn't afraid to use it! And so do you. If you put up a post, think it over and would prefer that it not post to the site, YOU can delete YOUR OWN POST -- no one else's.
