Return Of The Mailbag: Need Your Feedback

One of my favorite parts of the old DCRTV was the mailbag. There was always interesting conversation and information in there.

But, sometimes it could get very negative or political and it turned me off. I’m not interested in giving a platform to those kinds of posts.

I want to bring the mailbag back, but I want to set some ground rules before I do. As an early reader of the new DCRTV your feedback is important to me.

I’d like to know what you think? What should the rules be? Leave your thoughts below, or on Facebook, and let’s talk about it.

I know that Dave Hughes always posted the Emails by hand, so he had full control of the conversation. Often times he would stop it after a while saying “enough!”. I know with modern WordPress you probably could find a plugin that would hold the mailbag posts in queue until you approved them.I know that’s probably a pain in the neck, but that way you can make sure that it won’t run amok when you’re not around to watch it.

It doesn’t need an add on.

LegitImate News about Baltimore and Washington Radio and Television News in the TV Spy\TV Newser/TVNewsCheck Style was de-emphasized in favor of Mailbag Comments that Readers were “forced” to read!! The Original DCRTV and PBRTV followed the News emphasis very well!! I am thrilled that this site has returned!! I see a Great Future for the Revival!!

Great that you have revived this site. Will you be posting an updated list of radio stations?

I like the idea of a revival. There were some posters who would post and then log in using and agree with themselves. Would you be able to detect and deter this?
