Rock the (Comments) Vote!

imageGoogle made some changes this week which have made comment moderation even more of a pain.  Previously, I just had to click a link in my email and it would automatically either publish or reject the comment.

Now, I have to go through a whole rigmarole, which – practically speaking – is going to be very annoying to follow through on every single day.

So I’m asking you to vote… would you prefer to:

A) leave a comment the current way; it will not appear immediately and Jennifer has a hassle to approve whatever I have to say,

OR

imageB) leave a comment immediately (instant gratification!) but have to pass through one of those annoying CAPTCHA word-scrambles (which seem to get harder with every passing week) to verify that you are a human being and not a spammer.

It’s your call – moderation or captcha???

(if nobody leaves a comment, that means you folks probably don’t care enough and I’ll just do whatever the heck I want and nobody will notice!)

  1. I don't know why, but I can't pass those captcha things. I know for sure that I'm typing the right words, but it just keeps rejecting my answers. So for me the answer is, if you put in the captcha thing, I won't be able to comment anymore.

  2. I'm not a big fan of those captcha things but if it's easier for you than I think you should go for it. SCJ- I have seen captcha's that seem like they automatically reject the first time even if you typed it correctly but usually pass through the second time, that would be annoying if it won't let your comments through!

Are Jews an "underrepresented community" in children’s publishing?

I applied for a writing award yesterday. I'm not going to get it, but that's not what I wanted to share with you. Here's what I wanted to share. This box:   I stared at this box for a long, long time. And then I decided not to check it. Even though I believe people like me truly are underrepresented, we probably wouldn’t fit the definition in other people's minds. Why? Well, because we're European. Because we are white. Because as everybody knows, Jews control the media. (do we???) If anything, some people say, Jews are over -represented in publishing. And yet. Some definitions are careful not to include people like me. Like this random definition from the State of California which defines underrepresented for some very specific business purposes as: "an individual who self-identifies as Black, African American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native, or who self-identi
