There are real people behind blog comments
Yesterday I had the pleasure to meet one of this blog’s most regular (and valued) commenter – The Skept.

After many passionate and thoughtful exchanges it was really nice to meet in person to share a bit more about our stories and to talk in person. It was certainly a lot easier to discuss and not be misunderstood or have to type long comments.
It was really nice to remember and recognise that each commenter is a real person (something that can be lost at times in the heat of a passionate discussion). I value every comment and commenter who contributes to this blog. So it was an absolute delight to meet ‘The Skept’ in person.
One thing I discovered in our meeting is that misunderstandings can be cleared up much quicker.
So I was delighted to meet one of our valued members of this little blog ‘community’. It made me realise afresh how every commenter is a real person with a story and I am committed to treating everyone with dignity, graciousness and respect – even if we disagree.
