I hate to moderate comments. I believe in the free give and take of ideas. However, some folks have constantly taken advantage of my free give and take policy to place vulgar and personal attacks that have nothing to do with my posts.
Therefore, as much as I hate to, I am going to moderate comments. Rest assured that comments that disagree with me, criticize me, or even trash me will still go up. I just need to filter out the garbage that has been a problem of late.
Anonymous comments will still be allowed, and yes, I will even put up Ty's stuff, as long as it is not vulgar and personal.
It might take a few hours for a comment to go up. Just be patient. I have a real job to do as well.
I believe that weeding out the vulgar and the nasty personal stuff will elevate this blog and the discussions of the issues.
Thanks for reading and for commenting. I enjoy the real discussions we have about the issues of the day.
