Sure, Carroll, anyone can write a blog. The originator of the blog can be deleted by its author. I also have the power to delete content that I don't think should be on the site.

There have been many disagreements on this site, as on any Forum, but in general things have been harmonious. I have been told by those who know about the management of these things that too much interference with the dialogue invalidates it and kills the site.

You can imagine I have not been agreement with everything I read here!
