If your suggested link doesn’t appear on the next edition of Sister News, it may be for one or more of the following reasons:
- It has already appeared here. Look back through the posts on preceding days, and you may find it.
- It is substantially the same as something that already appeared here. This is especially true with regard to news articles, many of which are simply rehashes of articles or reports from sources like Catholic News Service, Reuters, or the Associated Press.
- It is not directly relevant to the purposes of this site, which is to gather news, information and opinion about American Catholic Sisters and Nuns.
- It is too wacky, vituperative or factually inaccurate, in the sole judgment of your friendly Sister News editor, or in some other way does not advance the story or the discourse.
- It is not possible to determine who wrote it. Sister News does not link to anonymous material. There is some really fine writing that is not appearing here, unfortunately, because its authors are anonymous. I know there are good arguments on both sides of the anonymity issue, but your friendly Sister News editor has chosen to come down on the side of transparency.
- It is not yet published on the web. Sister News does not actually publish articles itself, but only links to them. Instead of sending something you’ve written, send a link to where you’ve published it on the web, and it will be considered.
All the suggestions and links that continue to arrive each day are much appreciated. The mix of offerings is richer for all your help.
