Should We Publish Mean Spirited Comments?

I have been blogging steadily since the beginning of 2008. I have used forums on Blogger, here and other venues. It first began as a way to express opinions on the real estate market. It was and is a great outlet. Then it grew to become an educational avenue for other Realtors and the general public. I have since written about 150 posts, ranging from short sales to market statistics and occasionally off-topic commentary or stories. I have found a tremendous response from my fellow real estate bloggers and consumers, alike. On an almost daily basis, I receive phone calls and emails from Realtors and the general public from all over the country with real estate questions, usually involving today's hot topic, short sales.

Today, I noticed my local newspaper, the Northwest Florida Daily News, has a blogging platform, so I thought, "Why not give it a shot? That way, I can be more connected with the local market." I went ahead, filled out a profile, and entered my first blog, Countrywide Wants Short Sale Buyers' Social Security Numbers, one of my most recent posts. Three minutes later, I received a comment! I was excited -"What a fantastic new avenue!" I thought. Except it wasn't a nice comment. The writer said, "Thanks for the info, Wendy, but I prefer advertising on your signs." Ouch. I had a choice. Publish it or reject it. I chose to publish. And I responded, "Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry if you didn't find the information helpful. Perhaps others will."

It's Wendy!
