On comments and cowardice

March 17th, 2006

As everyone should know by now, viagra canada medicine I love comments.

But I just discovered that I loath the cowardice of people who comment anonymously.

If you want to insult me, have the courage to do it in the open…in a venue where I can reply appropriately.

(By the way, I am not responding to anything that happened at From Where I Sit. Everyone who has ever visited this site has been friendly and courteous even when they disagreed with me.)

    In that case, let me be the first to say that you are an obnoxious SOB who gives a bad name to all bloggers. You really ought to leave this to the grown-ups, people like Xoff.

    There. I feel better now.

    But at least you said it to my “face.” Plus, I know where you live. :)

    That’s one thing (or so) I like about WordPress that I didn’t like about Blogger; you at least get the IP address of every commenter, and if requested, an e-mail address. You could also limit comments to a list of registered users you control instead of Blogger (of course, I don’t even have registration turned on at NRE because it sure seems the moonbats are a bit afraid of me and my Louisville Slugger :-)

    You’re not bringing the bat to the Blogging Summit are you? :)

    I use Haloscan for comments. Yes, I can see the IP address. It’s more fun to say nasty things in the open. That is, if you enjoy watching people’s reaction.

    Personally, I don’t get the point of saying something nasty if you DON’T hang around for the reaction.

    No doubt there. To do that, and then leave, is coardice.

    Could not agree more. I don’t care what someone comments at my blog as long as language I teach my children not to use is avoided.
