What does this mean?
If you already have a Google Account, and AOL account, or one of several other accounts, click above to see, you will have to enter that account to post a comment.
Anonymous comments: We believe anonymous comments serve a purpose. When a Judge habitually shows up late, or acts improperly in court, the litigants cannot always openly raise the issue for discussion for obvious reasons. Therefore, if a problem arises, there have been times when anonymous comments on the blog have helped raise and then resolve the issue.
However, before we take that drastic step, we are going to try something else first: we will now screen comments more carefully, and we will not always announce when we are not posting a comment.
Call someone a jerk or attack their ethics, and unless you are willing to do so using your real name and have information to support your charge, we will not post the comments. Basically, if you want to make sure a comment is published, use your name from an Open ID account.
Censorship? You bet. Our blog. Our rules.
However, we will NOT censor based on political or ideological beliefs, merely on courtsey and decency.
You can still advocate for the presidential candidate or judicial candidiate of your choice, and we promise not to censor those comments.
How will you know for sure? You won't. This is the price we all pay for the level of mean and nasty comments that a small minority of readers have infected the blog with.
Write your comment and see. We hopes this brings back readers who used to comment and write their names. All we can say is give us a chance. We will work hard not to let you down.
Kindly act accordingly.
See You In Court.
ps. Our apologies to Judge Mills-Francis. We could not post your picture yesterday as the Blogger picture function went, to use a technical computer term, "kablooey". Blogger is working on resolving this problem.
