I don’t like doing it, but I’ve moderated several people over the last two days. I’m trying to stay away from starting a registration process – mostly because a few years back when I did have an open registration, a troll broke in and took over the blog. I was on vacation at the time, but I restored everything and booted the clown out – but that’s why there’s no link to register.
Anyway, if this was my coffee shop or my shoe store, I wouldn’t allow horseplay, so I’m taking these measures to restore a semblance of order here. I’m pretty sure that some of yesterday’s trolls weren’t who they pretended to be – they’ve been here before under different names.
So, if you comment, and find yourself moderated (Harry, Eagle Keeper, Cyber Bully, ObamaGirl, specifically) I’ll let your comments through if you’re actually having a discussion and not namecalling and being a general jerk.
Some of you, not listed, might find yourself moderated because my spam filter is working overtime – that would be accidental. If you find your comment not posted email me and I’ll dig it out of the filter.
But, I’m just trying to keep the discussions on track and give the impression that we’re all grown ups here. Take your flame wars to email.
