Simplified reader comment feature

As of now, all previous posts (a few over 70) have been edited to conclude with the standard comment section most people expect to find on blogs. (Previously, comments had to be directed to a separate email address,, and each post concluded with a note to that effect. The change this week brings my blog into line with a more familiar method of supporting readers’ comments.

The new access for readers will be the kind referred to as “modified comments.” That means I’ll have a chance to review each comment before it actually shows up “in public,” so to speak. My exercising prior review is not to silence comments that take issue with me or that come from a different worldview. But it will enable me to screen out commenters using the blog for their own personal soapboxes, overly lengthy entries, and inappropriate language like name-calling or personal attacks. And, of course, in the case of all published comments, I may choose to respond or not.


About John Bruce Carver

I am a U. S. citizen living in Atlanta, Georgia, having grown up in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and graduating from Chattanooga High School. I served in the Electronic Security Command of the U. S. Air Force before receiving a B.S. degree in business/economics and an M.Ed. in educational psychology, both at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. I then completed a Ph.D. in clinical (and research) psychology at Emory University. I have two daughters and three granddaughters. An ardent international traveller, I have been in over 70 countries for business and pleasure. My reading, other than novels, tends to be in history, philosophy, government, and light science. I identify philosophically as a secular humanist, in complete awe of the universe including my fellows and myself. I am married to my best friend, Miriam, formerly of the United Kingdom and Canada.
