Young Democrats of Harford County

For Democrats of all ages and other like-minded folks in Harford County, Maryland.

Blogging etiquette

Posted by Annie on October 1, 2007

While this blog does say across the top “For Democrats of all-ages and other like-minded folks in Harford County, Maryland,” we also enjoy the opportunity to have opposing viewpoints and political debate.  The Republican blog in Harford County does the same.  However, the political debate is not name-calling, one-line insults, or anything disrespectful.  If you have a point, please comment!  If you want to say “You are stupid,” or “Kill all illegal immigrants,” don’t bother.  Both sides seem to understand this concept of civil discourse on HarfordRepublican; check out this discussion about the death penalty.  All the comments actually have substance, which is more than I can say for a lot of the comments we’ve received in the last few days.  And they are not snarky or cutting; they sound like people who actually want to have a discussion, not just people who want to sling insults or obscentities. 

Just because it’s a blog doesn’t mean we should abandon all manners.  If you have a point and make it in a respectful way, you’re welcome to comment.
