Like most bloggers, I retain the right and ability to moderate comments I receive in response to my postings. This is something I take seriously. I post those comments verbatim; what I receive is what is uploaded.
I don't expect everyone, or anyone for that matter, to like what I have to say or how I say it. I don't expect people to automatically think I am witty, funny, smart, creative, intelligent, or any other complimentary adjective you might apply, nor do I expect anyone to even find what I write to be interesting.
I write for me; I share my words and opinions with anyone who feels the need to read them. That said, I appreciate and welcome comments and criticism, both complimentary and uncomplimentary, as long as the comments are civil and fit to print.
However, when I receive comments on a blog post that contain name calling, personally derogatory remarks (about me rather than the topic of the post), or comments rife with grammar, spelling, capitalization, and usage errors that would make the comment writer look foolish, chances are I will not post those comments. Anonymous comments containing any of the aforementioned will not be considered. After all, if I am brave enough to post what I have to say with my name in lights, the least you can do is have the guts to identify yourself, especially if you expect to be taken seriously.
If you have a serious need to see your inflammatory comments posted on-line, I suggest you write your own blog because your words will not be housed here.
