FanPost

A thank you to BSD moderators/editors

Running this blog cannot be an easy job.

You manage hundreds of thousands of alumni the majority of which walk around with a passion trumped only that by the religious radical. You deal with the Philly/Pittsburgh divide, and scare the Ohio State trolls back to underneath their bridges.

Covering this story cannot be easy.

It challenges everything that we know not only as Penn State football fans, but as human beings. There is a clear divide between "clean house" and "let the facts play out" people. What is clear is that this is a forum by which people can express their opinions freely. The has led to some surprising discussions, as some consistent commenters have seen their opinions diverge from the expected.

This is not an easy situation to manage, and I commend you for it. I also respect your opinions and appreciate what you post. More than that you've provided excellent news coverage for that, and for that I commend you for getting out of the basement and doing some solid work.
