No, this isn’t about the other pink meat.
Over the past week, this blog has been inundated with spam comments. Â There have also been a couple of comments that could possibly have come from readers, however, comments without a real name submitted will not be accepted per thefor this site. Â In fact, I refused a comment earlier this week for these reasons and received an angry email from someone who wouldn’t reveal their identity even to me. Â However, Tom S., I was able to track you down from an earlier angry email you’d sent me, via your IP address, and do not appreciate your ire.
I don’t hide my identity and stand behind what I post to this blog – so should you. Â I am a strong believer in free speech, however, there are responsibilities that go along with that. Â I cannot believe that in most situations, you’re gonna fear recriminations or waking up with a horse’s head in your bed. Â If you feel the need to spout off incognito or you don’t agree, feel free to start your own blog and leave mine alone!
Blogs can be a productive, meaningful place for the exchange of ideas. Â We don’t always have to agree, but we do need to be civil.
Thanks for listening!
