Things have kind of gotten off track here. My last 2 blog posts, on the Drive by First Trip and the Highland Township reassessment, have generated a large number of comments. But on both, the comments went way off track and veered off into long back and forths about Catskill Farms houses, the guy who builds them and the people who buy them. The on-message comments in both threads were kind of lost. While I haven't deleted any of the comments, I've closed the comments on both of those threads.
I know I'm going to get a few emails or comments from people accusing me of censorship and that I shouldn't censor any blog comments. But in the past couple of weeks, I've received emails from people commenting that the blog comments lately have gotten way off track and asking that I do some editing. While I'm not editing what's already been posted, I would like to ask readers going forward to try to keep comments succinct and on track.
