Today I received a very slanderous comment from a clearly confused individual. The anonymous commenter made some very serious and nasty remarks about someone I know personally. Of course, I was both shocked and delighted. Shocked because of the nonsense that people can get away with saying under the cover of anonymity, and delighted that I finally have a troll. My blog has made it in the Internet world!
I’ll take this opportunity to lay down the law regarding comments. If someone writes anything which whiffs of slander, back-biting, tale-bearing or the like, I will immediately delete his comment and that commenter will be persona non grata on this site. This blog is free of the contentions that plague much of “Internet Orthodoxy”—I intend to keep it that way.
