They say that one of the definitions of insanity is doing the exact same thing over and over again, expecting different results.
I’ve been repeatedly asking for people to be less negative and it hasn’t worked. So, it appears there are two choices. Option A is to suffer through your negativity. Option B is to stop subjecting myself to your negativity.
I’m choosing Option B. We will cease posting new content for the next little bit. I can’t give you a firm answer as to when we will return. It could be two weeks, it could be five days, it might be two months.
In addition to no new content, commenting has been turned off for all articles. This will be in place until we resume operations. You’ll still be able to access the content should you wish – you just can’t leave any new depressing comments.
When we do return, there will be an updated Comment Policy. Much like when we made the switch to outlaw posting in capital letters, I expect there will be a backlash. But I assure you that if you approach it with an open mind, you’ll find that the changes make sense and have the ability to improve the level of discourse at the site.
Until we return, if you’re looking for Mets news beyond the mainstream sites, please visit my friend John Coppinger over at the Metstradamus Blog. John’s been a guest on the podcast, has been wonderful to me and is a good writer, too. Check him out.
I hope everyone reading this has a great New Year and we’ll see you in 2018.
