“Sponsoring Racism” or Taking Advantage of Technology?

We recently received a comment through our Contact Us page, accusing Locally Grown of sponsoring racism because of something that was posted by one of the local blogs we show on our right sidebar. I feel the need to publish a disclaimer.

One of the features we use on Locally Grown is what’s known as a “feed aggregator”, which imports headlines from other blogs and displays them here. We’ve selected Northfield-area blogs with a civic focus, but we don’t have any influence or control over what is posted.

It’s bad enough that I’m sometimes held responsible for stuff Griff and Ross say, but I can’t possibly accept responsibility for the entire Northfield blogosphere. But if the original blogger doesn’t let you post comments, feel free to chime in here and start a discussion.
