Comments

Regular readers of this blog may have noticed I have messed about with my commenting system a little over the last few days. Now it is essentially back to how it originally was.

I feel that everyone ought to have a voice, and that censorship is bad bad bad. Having said that, this is MY space on the web, moreso than youtube, and if people are going to be assholes to me or about people or things I care about, then I will not feel bad about deleting comments, or even turning them off all together.

As it stands, I am not going to have notifications sent to me like i did before for comments, and they will be posted automatically with no intervention from me. If and when I read them though, if there are spam messages, or otherwise undesirable messages, I will delete them!

For any snivelly 'anonymous' commenter who is going to remark something to the effect of this being akin to 1984 and that I should stop trying to crush the individual, maaaan, etc, well, you have the whole rest of the internet to say whatever you want to. This is my blog, bizzo. As far as I am concerned, you behave yourself or you get deleted. You wouldn't come into my house and crap all over the nice tablecloths- you aren't going to shit all over my comments or say mean things to me here.

so there!! *sticks nose in the air and snoots off to ivory tower*

The previous blog entry was for men enjoying foot fetish, this one's for men who enjoy being dominated by a female.

Now, I don't want to do anything but postwhore and leave nasty comments! Aaargh!
Mmm...

Thats Cool I know you are usually very realistic and your skin is not real thin. I have been able to agree and more interestingly disagree with you. As long as its not real insulting.
I like being able to Kid around with you. Its kinda weird I feel like I can bust your chops a bit at least more than I would a stranger but we are strangers to each other.
I just cant understand some of these people who would think you would actually meet them.
(godamn some people are stupid)
Just because people feel they know you they think you know them or something. However with that being said thanks for breakfast ;)
(just kidding for you dolts out there )

One last thing I think its very cool that I can disagree with you with out getting my shit deleted.

Ummm... Wow. I really don't know how to answer that. I mean, I understand where you're coming from. But that was so harsh that it even hurt my feelings, and I almost always leave you positive comments.

Kinda makes me scared to leave comments anymore either way.

Yeah, I had noticed that the comments had gone all Nazi. Glad that its sorted it out now.

You know I've never been able to figure out this freedom of speech crapola that people bandy about when it pertains to other peoples websites. I agree pl, it's your site, your rules. The folks that complain-go start your own damn site. Then your free to say whatever the hell you want.

It's your Blog! You should be free to delete anything you like as you see fit. You should have complete control over your own Blog to do anything you want with it.You sound like you are just trying to find the balance between being fair and being realistic in the face of all the internet crap that you are bombarded with. You do bite the bullet when you need to but you don't appear to be harsh, restrictive or controlling to me. But them i'm English so perhaps it's partly a language problem that makes some here take offence at reading other meanings from your words.

Fully agree. It's your blog, you can do whatever you want with it.

"You wouldn't come into my house and crap all over the nice tablecloth". Hah. This reminds me of the Anti-piracy advert on The IT Crowd.

I like the Feedjit gadget! It allows you to see where, exactly your "peeps" are posting from. It isn't exactly right 'tho. When I look up myself, it says I'm in a town 3-4 miles away from my actual location. Nothing's Perfect.

I was wondering why you were approving comments but I take it that some asshole(s) were to blame (they usually are)

I love 1984 references. George Orwell was quite the visionary, considering he wrote the book in 1948, I first read it in the 70's, I experienced the actual 1984, and most of cool people today have read the book.

A. you're a whore.
B. you love censorship.
C. the only thing you don't censor is whoriness.
D. everyone check out my website!
E. If I write joking posts I refuse to end them with j/k
F. I want to be your shoe.
G. you're a whore.. oh wait, I already said that.. but I just like how "G. you're a whore" reads like "Gee, you're a whore"
