An Administrative Change

A number of readers of this blog have contacted me off-blog to complain about my pet idiot, one "pepsiholic" by name. Up to this point I have refrained from blocking him because, basically, I felt sorry for him.

But when people start telling me that they are reluctant to post any comments to this blog because of the sophistry of pepsiholic's juvenile comments, the way he is so skilled at elevating some minor point to the level of consideration, and the fact that he refuses to engage in an adult-level debate, I have to take them seriously.

And that is why, after much soul-searching, I have instituted a "moderated" feature to this blog's comments. From now on, your posts will have to be approved by me before they will see the light of day.

I didn't want to do this, but given the number of complaints I've received, I feel I have no choice. So go ahead and post your comments; I will try to get to them as soon as possible and approve them for publication.

I regret any inconvenience this may cause you, but it was necessary to facilitate a reasoned discussion among adults.

I just stopped reading him because I couldn't take it anymore.

His nonsense would NEVER stop me from posting here.

That said, I do Thank You, OPV.

Thanks, guys. He really was getting to be a tiresome and tedious little twerp.

I love this blog, and the exclusion of this person who sheds light on nothing will only enhance the experience. It's important to listen to the other side, but this guy's screeds only represent his own disturbed thinking, and shed light on nothing. Good decision, Farns...

Thanks, MRLN. I count you among my most faithful readers.
See you next time I'm in NYC!

"You's two..."??? Spoken like a true Jersey Girl, jae.
OF COURSE we wouldn't think of keeping you out. After all, I KNOW what "Jersey Girls" are capable of...
I'm looking at Mid-November. I'll be in DC for the AU conference on November 8-9, and after that I'm free as a bird, as they say.
What about you two?

Wow, How did I miss out on the NYC plans? Of COURSE I'm in!! I have theater tix for Nov. 22, but other than that, I'm available. Hopefully we'll have something to celebrate...
