I have a very free and easy policy when it comes to comments on this blog.
Essentially, my policy is that anyone can comment, and if I don’t like what they have written, then that is my problem. I won’t delete or modify their posts because I’m not a censor.
There are exceptions to this though.
If one commenter seriously abuses another and launches a personal attack, I will remove or modify the comment[s]. So far, I have only had to do that once.
Another is when a comment comes in that is irrelevant to the topic and is there purely to push someone’s personal agenda on some other topic. In my book, that is spam.
I had a comment on a post, and it was addressed to me personally. It was from my old friend "SuperShadow" or whatever his name is. He used a false email address so I can’t write to him personally, even if I wanted to. The first line in the comment was..
"Grandad please let this comment thru. Im under pressure from morm-jordil to keep this campaign going. All your other blogging friends hav no problem with it".
Now, I very much doubt that my blogging friends would like to support this kind of campaign, and even if they did, that is their business. Their policies may differ from mine.
Actually, the subject he is writing about would be an interesting one for debate, but I’m not going to mention it now, as that would be playing his game. So here is an open challenge to "SuperShadow" or whatever his name is.
If you want a debate, or to make a point, then write to me directly. Use a valid email address so I can reply. I am not going to engage in debate with someone who hasn’t even the courage to use a real address.
Until then, your comments will continue to end up in my spam box, where they will be deleted.
May the force be with you.
