We’ve installed a racism filter

One of the things we’ve tried to do at the Park Rag is provide a place where community members can voice their opinion. We do that through posting stories written by others and enabling comments on stories. Unfortunately some recent comments have become racist in nature. We’re frankly tired of reading them and we believe other readers are …

Please be careful with comments …

At the Park Rag we get a number of comments on stories we write. We appreciate that people care enough to take the time to read and comment.

Comments can now be made on stories

The Park Rag is about to do the stupidest thing in its history, and we’ve done plenty of dumb things. We’ve had requests from a few people across the community to be able to comment on stories. We’ve resisted this for a long time because, well, comments rarely add value. At best no one comments and at …
