TG Geeks - The Two Gay Geeks

"You name it, We talk about it" ™

A Comment on Comments

TG Geeks Webcast email sig copy smallThe Two Gay Geeks are troubled that we must write this opinion article, but it has become necessary.

When we started this enterprise (website and webcast) we intended for it to be a fun creative outlet for our geeky nerdiness. For the most part it has been a fun process once we worked out most of our technical issues and psychological issues (I’m not worthy and all that crap). It has allowed us to do something creative together that has strengthened our relationship and given us more “stuff” to geek out about.

However, it is distressing when we see or experience divisiveness and negativity where our work is concerned. We have commented in the past about how wonderful it is to attend Phoenix Comicon and Phoenix Comicon Fan Fest and see all sorts of people actually seeming to get along no matter the level of geek or nerd or cosplay. Our journey to acceptance of who we are as people as well as who we are as geeks and nerds has been long and sometimes a little rocky, but we have managed to come to a place where we can, at the very least, be tolerant of many things.

It is with tolerance in mind that I wish to talk about this website and our decision to allow comments and submission of material, media, and suggestions. While we may not always agree with a point made or a position someone holds we have always tried to be fair and relatively non-judgemental. I say relative since we are both human beings and are very passionate in some of our opinions, but we have not been defamatory.

So, it stands to reason that we would not be very happy if someone used our comment section to cast aspersions on any individual or company. It is one thing to say that the “suits” at XYZ Network are idiots for making some programming decision, but it is entirely another to specifically name an individual and call them names or to call a company evil. We will neither approve nor allow those comments to be seen or even edit those comments so they are palatable, they will simply be deleted.
