Clarification of Peter Brown’s post regarding David’s Anthem Journal:

If you and/or Dan wish, you are welcome to publish, in the interest of accuracy and fairness, my following brief response to Peter Brown’s references to my blog policy, published on Anthem Today:
Mr. Brown writes as follows:
Thereafter, J. Mayfield presented it to the Berman Blog, it was published there, and with it was a declaration by Berman that unlike “Dick” he never refuses to publish articles even if he disagrees with them and so on. “Dick” and J. Mayfield and I knew that was not true. In fact, J. Mayfield told “Dick” that Berman has refused to publish several articles in the past. “Dick” implored J. Mayfield to set the record straight, he refused. There is more of this situation, and it doesn’t get any better for Berman or J. Mayfield. I will leave it there for now.
Mr. Brown misrepresents my blog policy. I have never said or written that I would publish articles even if I disagree with them. In fact, I have published very few guest articles over the 15-plus years I have operated my blog. What I HAVE said, however, is that I allow comments on articles, whether they agree or disagree with a position I hold, as long as they are civil and not overly abusive or irrelevant. – That’s my policy in a nutshell, and it has not changed. The nature of civil discourse is that well-meaning people often disagree with each other, and my commitment is to give them a forum to express contrasting views.
