Our Week In The Web: October 2, 2015

This article is more than 3 years old.

We've written here in the past (many, many times) about the use of our email address as a commenting platform. The verdict we reached — rather unscientifically, we'll admit — was that the email address, while useful, was not a prime contact or comment platform for the majority of our listeners and digital audience members. Then this week happened (we posted the email address on our 'Contact Us' page, where it should have been before, actually, our apologies for that logic gap) and we received dozens upon dozens of emails all week during every hour and beyond. (Our usual rate is one or two a week, max). So we're back here again. Is this the best way for you to contact us and leave a comment during our broadcast? Should we streamline the forwarding process so host Tom Ashbrook can have access to these notes during the show? Let us know here, or email us at onpointnpr AT gmail DOT com.
