Please Play Nice

I have been so swamped all week I haven't been able to keep a close eye on all the comments on my blog. After seeing what was posted on the "Paul Ogden is a Goof" thread, I decided to take them down. I'm all for free speech, but some were in bad taste. Rather than spend a couple hours reading, trying to sort the good from the bad, I just decided to take them all down.

I really appreciate all the activity on my blog. Eventually though I may have to go to what others have done and disallow the "anonymous" posting. In the meantime, let's play nice. Nobody here is perfect - except for me of course - so a little less crassness and fewer schoolyard insults would be appreciated.

Dude, you may be new to blogging, so here's the basic rule on blog integrity: don't take anything down.

If you violate that rule, do it under the most extreme caution.

If posts go missing, you'll lose legitimacy, and your blog will take on the feel of your own amen corner.

Well, Anon 1:36, while I don't want to lose people wanting to give feedback, I really don't want to subject my self to a slander lawsuit because I let people say whatever they want without limit.

My rule on HFFT for people who anonymously call me names, etc...is to not publish them. I moderate.

However, I WILL publish the comments (no matter how crass and insulting) of anyone who has the kahunas to sign their name to opinion.

These "schoolyarders" don't have the courage to sign their names, however.

Paul...you've arrived. It looks like it is time you moderated your comments. I'll help you set it up if you don't know how.
