Disclaimer

In case you haven't noticed I have added a disclaimer to my side bar. For the record I want everyone to know that unless I tell you otherwise that the local/or other wise the history behind the stories on this blog ARE NOT written by me. I have either found the information on another blog or somewhere on the Internet or in a book. Some stories are from personal experience, but a lot of these are not. This blog should be viewed as "entertainment only".The reason for this disclaimer is:
I recently realized that I had made a mistake by posting information on The Dora Armistead House localed in Colonial Williamsburg and have been asked by family members to please remove the post since the information was not correct.

I would like to publicly apologize to them and want to let them know that I was posting information from a source that seems to be incorrect.
I am also sorry that it took me several months before this post was removed. I did not know that I had been reqested to remove it. If I had known it would have come down at the time of the request. I do not normally go back and recheck for comments after more than a few days. Again I am very sorry for any upset that it may have caused.

As mentioned I use other sources for my paranormal post and local folklore.

Thank You.

Patty

Patty,
How sad is it that you have to do something like this? I'm positive that it's obvious that your blog is just that, a blog. You should be entitled to write what you like, unless your being horrible about someone who doesn't deserve it! don't let this put you off, if someone doesn't like what you write then Close the tab and move on! I enjoy reading what you write so carry on the good work please! (((HUGS)))

Thanks Sarah
The post I had posted wrong was something that had been up a long time. The photo I had was not correct house(my mistake) and the family did not like information being put out that the house was haunted.(mistake on the part of my source) It was an honest mistake on my part since I had copied information from that source. In this case I felt like the family had the right to ask to have the information removed. But to keep this type of thing from happening again I put the disclamer both on this blog and the paranormal blog.

I'm sorry this happened, Patty... I also heard of someone getting sued for complaining about a specific place of business... GADS---why can't what we say be just that--what we say!!!! Makes me so angry...GADS!

For your info, I set my comments to have to be approved by me before being posted IF someone comments on a post that is more than 3 days old. Like you, I don't go back and read comments on old posts. SO--this way it comes to me via email--and I can approve it or chunk it.. At least I can keep up with ALL comments that way. Just a thought!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

I thihk I will set mine that way too. This way I will know if something comes in later. As I metnioned though, this time I did feel like it was the right thing to do by removing the post. I had unknowly posted the wrong photo. (I thought it was the right house but was not) I probably could have left up the information saying the house mentioend in the post was haunted because that is an opinion, and is in a published book. but it wasn't worth it, so I just removed everything.
