Comments on the Comments

Couple of responses to things in the comment sections.

One accuses us of being a 35th Street boss. To that we reply, "Hahahahahahahaha." They also accuse us of "breaking through our thin blue line." Could you point that out to us? Because we can't really see it. Anywhere. And we've been looking pretty hard, as we write everything here and review it regularly. We're the ones telling guys and gals to stick together, avoid the name calling, cut out the racial garbage and woman hating. The assorted nastiness going on in the comments isn't us. We don't patrol the comments that diligently. And the way we rip on 35th Street in general, the farther away we are from that hell, the better.

Another commentator tells us the blog is getting stale and we'll never make it to 100,000 visitors unless it gets more exciting. This after we hit 900 daily visits fourteen times this month and topped 1,000 on seven of those days. How many of those hits were this guy telling us we're boring?

We saw someone asking for a best/worst cops thread, best/worst district thread, etc. We really don't want to go there. Does anyone really think it'd be any different from what goes on regularly in the comments? We did a best bosses thread that is still open (look in the right margin under "Most Popular" posts - Congratulations to John Farrell, Best Boss by acclamation.) It still gets about 20 new comments a week and is over 400 now. We even had a thread hijacked for "no so good" bosses - its in the same spot and still gets daily visits. But why would we solicit what would only end up being a thread full of ammunition for a slander lawsuit? It'd be a headache.

scc, you are doing a great job, however, maybe you also need to remind some of your commentators to practice what their mama or kdg. teacher taught them: If you don't have anything nice to say about some1, then don't say it. And while your at it, find a way to give 009, 016 and 022 their own spaces. Sometimes we aren't in the mood for them, and only them. A selfish lot.

anyone who rips someone on this blog is a coward and is afraid to talk to someone face to face.

like the previous poster stated , dont say anything unless you have something nice to say.

this can be an excellent way to pass on info share stories or a good laugh but unfortunately the cowards who are afraid of their own shadows will get on here and bash and rip on people and worst thing is posting someones name. what next their address and social security number.

believe me im not a fan of dogs,beefers or slackers but if you feel strongly about someone like that do it the old fashioned way, take it to the back of the parking lot and settle it the right way. be it talking it out or a good parking lot brawl.

because getting on this blog and ripping people and saying stupid shit only puts SCC in jeopardy and makes us look bad.

lets not turn this into the electronic bathroom wall.

as springer says
take care of yourselves and each other.

and no im not a boss and no im not retired. i am just a blue shirt who enjoys the job and after 15 years sees things that dont look to good and wants to keep things in check.

Just received mail from the city's benefit mgmt. div. re: medical prescription changes and coverage

I'm in my mid-50's, on pension and divorced with no dependents. I do NOT qualify for Medicare. Do I have options in responding to this mailing? If so, any recommendations, guys?

Amen to 07:56. I am very close to stop coming to this blog. Good information and light hearted stories should be what this site is for. All the bashing gets old very quickly. And it kills me how so many bashers don't have the balls to identify themselves.

I have to agree with everybody else. This site used to be a great place to hear rumors and funny stories. Lately it has been awful and nothing but a bunch of crybabies. SCC I know your doing your best as its always people going off topic screwing things up. It seems weird that there haven't been the good rumors for awhile. Wonder if its because of Christmas season?

Maybe there should be a thread for the boring normal coppers who just like to share some ideas and laughs.

I know this will rate a few jagboy insults

To SSC: most of the time the topics are interseting, you just get blogjacked on a regular basis.
Not much you can do about it I guess.

Ask 1631 what happened at the last beat meeting when a woman requested that when they fall asleep,could they not park across her driveway so she could go to work without waking them up-True story!

hey guys im not a fan of 1631 on 3rd watch either...they do find alot of b-s things to do when there is a progress call or a progress job about to be broadcast..i think they have a way of finding pending jobs and always go down on t/s or walk/talk in park...but i have to say one thing to the guys who keep putting them down..Yess they do nothing and you could have came to 016th next period with a bid here...there were 4-opening and we got only 1-yes ONE bid..so as they say NIGGAR PLEASE. SHUT UP OR PUT UP.
