Comments Now Moderated

I tried to avoid this, but some jerk who keeps posting offensive crap has forced me to moderate my comments. Now, I have to read your comment before I will post it for everyone else to read. I will try to do it quickly and I will allow comments from everyone that disagrees with me. I will not allow personal bullshit aimed at me or anyone else.

It is sad that I have to do this, but he knows who he is. Freedom's just another word for the opportunity to be an incredible asshole. As far as I can tell, only one twisted creep abused that privilege. Because of this, the World Wide Web is just a touch less random and posting comments is a little less instantaneous. All because of one stupid jerk. And I hope/You're happy now...

You must be hitting a nerve with some folks, Mike. That's the only explanation for why they've responded with such vitriol.

The Greater Internet F*ckwad Theory explains it all! Again!

I'll resist the temptation to joke about the offensive blog posts and whether they'll be screened. But can't you just block the commenter?

Mike Plaisted said...

Hey, Wiggy, how do I do that? Thanks for your help.

Just be sure to allow reasonable, dissenting voices. You don't want to turn into that coward Cal Freiburger.
