For the Oysters.. A call for Eyes and Ears: As mentioned, this site is by and for Traditionalist Episcopalians in DSO. It is my policy to strongly encourage traditionalist Episcopalians in this diocese to remain anonymous on this blog. If the reasons for this aren’t already obvious, rest assured that they will be eventually. What I have done for myself is to set up a separate email account for just this blog. If you are intent on commenting a lot here, I recommend that you do the same. This is fairly easy – I use Yahoo! , and when I’m entering in my name, I put in my pseudonym (since of course, that is the field that appears in the ‘sender’ line of incoming emails).
Again… by and for, folks. If you notice something odd in your church bulletin or in a written document generated somewhere from within the diocese, you are encouraged to call it to my attention. It may be bloggable, or it may not be – there is a lot of things that go into that type of decision. But, at least I can be alerted to the development.
Sometimes, one or the other of us will not be able to consent to release of the news item. Perhaps even with your anonymity, you are concerned that you might get into trouble. Perhaps even, you aren’t concerned, but I am. If it would get you into trouble, my policy has been and is to regretfully not publish the news item.
Ah yes. One more word to my Oysters: Paper Trails are linked to a news item’s bloggability. ‘Nuff said.
For others. This sit is for you, too. Please respect me and people who write in, and you will receive the same treatment in kind. If you are Episcopalian and/or find yourself in sharp disagreement with something on this site, on a day that you might have (how shall we say) gotten out of the wrong side of the bed that morning, please know that I like to store the more offensive reader comments for the sake of trotting them out, in those instances when I correspond with Revisionist clergy. So, you may want to ask yourself if you would be proud to have your bishop or priest read your comment. On the other hand, it’s probably better for me if I accumulate as many offensive comments as possible, so perhaps I shouldn’t be so generous with the heads-up(?). 😉
