The first time you attempt to comment on this blog, you will be moderated. This cuts down on the amount of spam, but also allows me to gauge new folks.
I don’t generally block or delete any comments, unless they contain spam, have Privacy Act issues, or are threatening or racist in any way. You can view the rules here.
I will sum up for those of you who are in some way literacy challenged.
Blatant racism, threats against public officials or any statements similar in nature will be deleted. Sorry, guys. You’re free to think and believe what you want, but I have a job I love, and I’d like to keep it. And additionally, my site is not your soapbox to advocate revolution, revenge against tyrannical public officials or vent ignorant rants against blacks, Jews, gays, veterans, hedgehogs or marmosets. OK… maybe marmosets, because they’re creepy. I don’t censor, but you endanger my job or my credibility with your tinfoil hat lunacy about government jack boots and black helicopters, and how you’d like to down Marine One with your homemade RPG, and I’ll delete your comments post haste. Got it?
I’ve had to delete two such comments in less than 24 hours. So if you’re planning on posting more of the type of stuff I mention above, I would suggest you back the fuck off. I’m not going to allow this crap on my site. And it is my site. I pay for it. I write it. I own it.
I love dissent. I love a good argument. I love inappropriate language, especially if it’s creative. But you start spouting the kind of shit I’ve had to delete of late, and I promise you that you will not like the result.
I hope that’s clear.
