Explaining why they late a lame story hit the press:
WIP doesn’t publish material to its website throughout the month — although sometimes we do correct mistakes that went out in the print issue. Typically, the website reflects what we run in print that month. Other people may have an interest in making WIP more of an online publication, but personally, I think it would probably turn into a situation where the staff spent all their free time fending off attacks from the SondraK’s of the world. Not my cup of tea.
That people disagree with other people is… well obvious.
Also obvious is that just putting up stories more than once a month to reflect what is in the print edition, doesn’t mean you have to accept comments. You just have to post every time you have something new.
But, even if you did accept comments, you could have a standard of behavior to keep away the trolls. In the end, the people that disagreed with you would just be the ones that did it nicely.
Would that be ok?
I’m just thinking that its good to break down walls and have conversations. Maybe the folks that read WIP need to talk to the folks over at SonkraK. Both are just about as close as you can get to the chorus singing to the chorus in Olympia, and that doesn’t exactly encourage critical thinking.
