How I feel about comments (in comic form)

Portland Mercury reporter Sarah Mirk drew this sketch of me (and uploaded it via Twitter) during a panel discussion on Saturday at the 2011 Digital Journal Conference. I was on a panel about blogging and the topic of comments came up several times.

And yes, it’s true. I respect both the comments and the people who leave them. Thanks to everyone who keeps the comments interesting and productive… And thanks Sarah for the cool drawing.

NOTE: We love your comments and work hard to ensure they are productive, considerate, and welcoming of all perspectives. Disagreements are encouraged, but only if done with tact and respect. If you see a mean or inappropriate comment, please contact us and we'll take a look at it right away. Thank you.

    Bike Portland comments are some of the best I’ve seen. People contribute real information and well thought out discussions.

    you’re welcome! and I agree with gumby, there’s usually some great content in the comments that help enhance the article or at least give a different perspective…
