Just a quick blurp that if you see Matt McPartland in site comments just know that he is my son.
Matt will be helping to keep up with comments–while I don’t moderate them too closely I do try to skim through–in particular for ‘errors and omissions’ reports. I have a screen that lists all comments made on the site, all on 1 page–so one can see everywhere with a glance.
Additionally I skim looking for ‘spam’. The spam filter on the site works terrifically, but on rare occasions something slips through and I have to manually delete it.
Also maybe once a week a legitimate comment ends up in the spam filter inadvertently – I then manually approve the comment.
Lastly I look for any ‘dust ups’ of participants. We are fortunate that there really haven’t been issues. I do see some minor ‘skirmishes’ on occasion, but as long as they resolve themselves there is no reason to get involved.
So Matt will be helping to watch over these things so I can make timely corrections to errors and we can catch spam that slips through.
