I’ve banned two people since I opened this site up to comments again.
I basically take a hands-off approach to comments. And I don’t mind disagreement, even heated disagreement. But there are a few things I’m not going to tolerate. I’ll delete the first couple of offenses. Repeated violations will get you banned.
Here’s what not to leave in the comments section:
Personal attacks on me, my friends, my family, my upbringing, my education, etc. Call me thin-skinned if you like, but I’m not going to be insulted on my own blog. I do this because I enjoy it. The second guy I banned called me a “fat farm state hick,” a “god damn baby,” and a “fucking little turd,” then wondered why I “can’t handle a little disagreement” when I banned him.
That out of the way . . . as you were.
