Ground rules

I see there has been a bit of activity on the blog while I've been out and about today. Thanks to each of you for participating here.

In the interest of keeping things civil I am going to set down a few expectations. All opinions and points of view are welcome here, however I am asking that contributors be respectful and refrain from vulgarity, inappropriate comments and personal attacks on others.

Please feel free to debate as vigorously and passionately as you want - but I am asking that folks exhibit a level of maturity and resist resorting to inappropriate comment, hateful remarks, and name calling. I'm sure each of us knows when that point has been reached.

If the dialogue deterioriates - I'll be using my prerogative as the blog owner to delete comments that cross the line.

Larry,

While I can understand you concerns, shouldn't you take a vote amongst all posters to decide what posts you can or cannot delete.

Use the 50+1 rule amongst all that have posted here amongst the past 30 days.

When you claim to be the owner of this blog, it demeans me as a poster. You're making the rules of this blog on the backs of the readers.

I would like to get the readers of this blog union certified so that you can't make rash statements that make me feel inferior.

I think that all posters here should get benefits, higher than minimun wage and a sick bank.

I'm going to report you to the Bad Boss Blog as well for your heavy handed approach to posters.

Who's with me?

Solidarity forever... the boogeyman makes us strong!

I see you are upset with Mandryk for not verifying his info with you. Did you verify your posting with the Sask Party and did you do your homework to ensure you are comparing apples to apples? Innuendos can be very effective, but when they aren't based on truth you cannot predict the results. I can't wait to see how much the SFL and other unions have contributed to the NDP party that is hidden. I also can't wait to see how many corporate donors are hidden as well. Thanks for raising the flag on this one. You have done the people of Sask a favour.

I'm not upset in the least - with Mandryk or anybody else. When you do what I do for a living you get used to it.

I just reported on what is available in the public domain. All political parties have known about this information for years - after all - they file the returns. And you can't tell me that they haven't been fully aware of what each others returns look like. Come on!

And to set the record straight, again, - I support FULL disclosure, and always have. My record is very clear on that.

Except your criticisms were directed at one party, and not the other. You talk about the media and how they should have known, but what do you expect from the likes of Mandryk?

YOU should have known, and publicly offered the criticism to your own party.

Instead, you smeared several private individuals, public institutions and companies.

It backfired, and you look dumb. So be it.
