A few comments about comments

For the first time in the four years of this blog I've received a series of mean-spirited and highly critical comments.  I've deleted his comments not because they are critical (there are plenty of critical comments on this blog!), and not only because they border on mean-spirited name-calling (which they do and which is reason enough to remove them from this blog). Primarily, I've deleted the comments because the author didn't sign in with a real email address nor did he leave a web address for his own website/blog.  Not leaving me with any way to engage him directly, I have no interest in dealing with his comment vandalism on my blog.

So, Dan/Tom/Papist, please send me an email if you really want to engage me in conversation.  Otherwise, please go away.  Thank you.

In the mean time, I'm temporary moderating comments.  I find it annoying to do this, but I'm not sure what else to do.  Thanks.

    Chris – man, this guy must have been really cutting into you! I promise that I will not do the same. Or at least if I do I will leave the proper documentation. And Ben Masters says “hello”.
