It's the rules.

I have never had to do this before, but I guess it is time. I do not like deleting comments, unless they are spam. The only time I have altered a comment was when it was so full of vulgarities that it would have made a sailor blush. (I just changed some vowels so that work filters would not stop my site from being too vulgar).

However if you are going to leave an inflammatory or political comments on my blog, you WILL leave a valid e-mail address. You can put spaces in it or add something to it so that it will stop spam filters. IE Contagion_1@NOSPAMyahoo.com. That way I can respond to you both in my comments and by e-mail to let you know.

Why am I stating this now? I just had someone leave a very long, political comment on my Home Rule posts. However, this person made many accusations and asked questions. They did not however leave an e-mail address for which I can respond to them, nor others that may support or oppose our positions. Most of my readers that come for Home Rule information do not leave comments; they use E-mails.

I wish this commenter had left an e-mail address; I really wanted to ask him more questions

Sorry, I'll leave a valid e-mail address next time.

What a stupid ass rule... who the hell do you think you are making up idiotic guidelines for the rest of to follow?

And, yeah, I know you'll find out who this is, Mr. Sitemeter Watcher...

It's my site, my rules. If you don't like them hit the back button and don't come back.

I hate deleting comments, so when I get REALLY stupid ones, I move 'em to the Museum:
