Each time a post is made it seems like people are constantly worried about our community or residents being defamed by pessimistic individuals. Please understand that in the world today each person has a right to his or her opinion, and what blogging has done is allow any common individual become a published writer with the click of a button.
Although being able to be published is a very exciting feeling for people you must remember these are common individuals...not professional writers, like me.
Blogging does allow people to voice their opinion on topics they may have had no say in just a few years ago. People enjoy being heard and putting your words in writing on a medium like the Internet gives a satisfactory feeling that you will be heard...by someone.
Yes, you are going to get gossip on blog sites...that's what a blog site is, a place to gossip and discuss things.
There is no need to delete the blog site, people need and want to be heard because this is a very involved community of people and we need to do our best to make sure we are happy with it.
