James, I just wanted to commend you for your efforts to maintain the integrity of BlueNC as an open blog which offers the public the opportunity to express their thoughtful positions on matters affecting North Carolina politics in an honest and respectful environment. It is refreshing to see a blog that encourages diverse opinions, insists on the facts and disallows “intolerably obnoxious” behavior. This past week, you and the legitimate blog followers were challenged by the relentless banter and lack of transparency of several presumed corporate sock puppets on the Yadkin hydropower license issue. You wisely recognized the situation and responded accordingly.
On behalf of your many readers, thank you for upholding the character of BlueNC.
