Wow! My posts have been sporadic this semester, so imagine my surprise at the sudden increase in hits (187 so far today, compared to 50 yesterday) and influx of anonymous (and negative) comments! OK- it's only two comments, but I have now disabled anonymous commenting. I liked leaving that open, since it makes people less shy about 'de-lurking', but the point of this blog is not to argue! It's a venue for me to share my experiences.
My take on negative comments is this: if you don't like what you read, then click to another page! This is MY blog and you are welcome to completely ignore it if it annoys you. I apologize to anyone who prefers to comment anonymously, but I've had to go the way of being restrictive (like many other bloggers!)
