Can we have the option of disallowing comments in Journals?

I think I might want to start a journal, but I don't want to give people the ability to comment in it.

If they have a problem with something I write, I'd prefer that they either report me (because it's against the rules) or PM me directly to disagree. I dislike having a public squabble where people have the opportunity to pile on instead of just debating me head to head.

I could make it private, but I want the best of both worlds. I want to write unchallenged by those who disagree with my premise. I don't want to have to defend my ideas or the way I live my life. I want the ability to reach a semi-wide audience who can choose to ignore my writing, or to read it silently. I don't want to have to fend off people who throw stones. I don't want a reaction.

Is this possible? Does anyone else want this ability? I've heard someone state that you could disable comments, but I haven't figured out how to do that.

Thanks

I'm pretty sure your choices here at Interference are to have a journal with comments or have a private journal. I do not see this feature changing, (even if it were possible). Journals here do not work like 'real' journals online. It's not easy to just alter the functions like a real journal.

How come when I try and delete comments in my journal it tells me that I must be the owner of the journal to do so? Is there any way that I can delete things others have said in it?

I thought that the owner of the journal could delete entries.... I'll have to test it out under a different username and see what the deal is.

I know I've tried to delete JE's before & I got the same message as Tara... that I had to be "the owner of the journal". And I'm left thinking WTF?? I AM the owner!!!

why would we want people to delete someones comments? if the journal owner doesnt want people to respond.. they should make it private.

if a comment is abusive and needs to be deleted.. thats what mods/admins are for.

Interference Journals are not blogs and having other members comment is by social design. If its a public entry, those replying should be able to comment without the fear of another member (not mod or admin) deleting it.

Because when there are comments made that I feel the need to defend myself over, and dont want to have to do that, I would rather just get rid of the comment and avoid the backlash thats bound to happen afterward.
Theres been some high-class drama in my journal and it could have been avoided by a simple click of a button.
If the mods can have control of the boards and filter through what goes on in there, then shouldnt we be able to in a sense "mod" our journals?

Why would you assume that because you are the only one that can make an 'entry' in your journal that you should also be able to mod your journal? We surely don't allow people to mod their own forum threads.

Im not assuming. I'm asking a question, or making a suggestion. Which ever you like
This is supposed to be a suggestion forum isnt it?
And Sicy said herself that we were supposed to be able to do it. I dont understand why if there is a delete button on the comments that it doesnt work.

I thought we could, but I tried it under a different name(s) and I couldnt do it either.

By definition this is a public forum and a public journal. You can find it under Google. If one were to really want to express things privately, then go the Bridget Jones way and buy a diary.

Otherwise, anything anyone writes in the journals here is in the public domain. And open to comment.
