Deleting Comments

Starting today, I will be deleting pointless comments. The decisions will be entirely mine as this is my blog. Thankfully, this blog has not been plagued by profanity. But pointless, off the subject comments are detracting from the quality of this blog. I just deleted a comment from my most recent thread. To satisfy anyones curiousity, I will reprint it here and explain why it is the type of comment that I may delete. Here it is in its entirety:

From anonymous, "I guess he could be a hedge fund manager, a Telco, or a failing CEO, those who merely STEAL hundreds of millions of $$$ from the mass of people, and have Denis defend them.This vilifying the poor is exactly why the 'right' look like the Pharisees of the Bible that Jesus warned regarding Hell and Eternal Damnation.But, be self-righteous..."

My post was about a man who showed up at my business looking not for a job, but for a signiture making it seem to someone else that he was looking for a job.

Now the deleted poster did not dispute my narrative, nor did he defend the ststem that inspired a man to pretend to look for a job. Instead, he insinuated, without any evidence, that I would defend people who steal millions from others. Not only is this off subject, it is also needlessly mean-spirited, and untrue. The comment merely detracts from the conversation that I had hoped to have on the subject.

Now just to be very clear, I don't mind criticism or strong disagreement. In fact, I rather enjoy the challenge, which is one of the reasons that I have a blog. Anon is welcome to try again.

I would seriously suggest requiring posters to register.

Anonymous is a ridiculous thing.

I suspect there was alot more feedback and criticism on this topic but the opposition posting's were shredded and vanquished by the evil right wing blogger host!!!!

"Don't taze me bro!!"

Instead of deleting the posts, would it be possible to move them to another thread? You could call it the “Deep Tunnel”. I’m afraid I’ll miss anon’s wisdom. It was all so insane that it had me laughing out loud on more than one occasion.

Nemo if you need a good laugh just play anything Ron Paul said this week. Or Erica Jong, (did you see this??!!)

The crazy uncle of the Republican party is never good to listen to while drinking milk. I'll look at Jong after work. Did you see where Fred raised over $1,000,000.00 on the internet yesterday?

SECURE the borders

PUNCH the hippies

GO FRED!!!

How many times are you going to say that you are leaving anon? The door keeps slammin', but you keep coming back in through your little window.

"I must be missing the wisdom and depth of the posts from either Denis or his cohort."

I think you need to rephrase this to "My mind is missing the wisdom and depth of the posts from Denis and his cohorts".

I stand by my comment.

Good. Now, both you and your comment should go stand in the corner.


Uhn-uhn. Turn around and face the wall. No watching the right-wing-neo-con-good-ol-boys-club associating. And no dessert for you (just means a bigger piece of the pork pie for the rest of us, anyway).
