Alright, people. This has to stop. Now. It's not fun or funny anymore.
It has always been my policy on this blog that anyone can post anything they want, but I will not tolerate thread-jacking or harrassment of other commenters - any other commenters.
I understand that, like any open forum, this site has it's trolls. I accept that as a reality and delete them where I find them. I understand that there are some regulars who see themselves as "helping" me by harrassing and picking on certain trolls, and while I appreciate the spirit the fact is it does much more harm than good.
Also, while I'm annoyed by (and won't tolerate) trolls... the fact is that a lot of people who engage in this kind of behavior do so at least in part because they are suffering from serious personal and/or psychological issues of their own and I'm not interested in making their lives any worse than they already are by trying to "bully" them into going away - nor will I allow any posts by others trying to do so stand without prompt deletion.
All regular commenters can consider this your final warning: If this bullshit continues (on ALL sides) I am banning anonymous comments again and this time it won't be temporary. I don't want to do this, as it innevitably lowers traffic and cuts into my income, but I Will. Not. Tolerate. Bullying. Of ANY kind. On this blog.
Do we have an understanding?
