A Word About Comments

Moments ago, I deleted a comment on the board that contained false information about a player's health status. The test of any internet enterprise as open as ours is how far you're willing to let it stay open until people start doing jerky things. We've have very few unfortunate incidents through the year+ we've been doing the site, and we have the tremendous Harvard baseball community to thank for that. We value updates that people have that we aren't privy to and punditry about lineups, decisions and the season generally. But we're more than willing simply to shut down the comments if things get out of hand.
Needless to say, anything posted by an anonymous poster regarding a player's health or anything similarly sensitive should be taken with a fistful of salt. If there is an inappropriate post, please don't hesitate to e-mail us so we can investigate and take appropriate action. Brian and I check the account pretty frequently, and we're serious about this.
