After the recent shit show of a bunch of people who’s mothers should be slapped for not beating manners into their little asses like the rest of us decided this would be a good place to stop by and fling shit on the walls at the last couple of days, I finally had to turn comment moderation on because I didn’t have time to fuck with it.
While I was at work, trying to do my fucking job and keep the comments flowing at the same time, Good Old Cederq dropped me a line and offered to moderate comments for me while I am busy doing other things.
You know, like trying to keep a roof over my family’s head and food on the table.
Shit like that.
I was a bit hesitant at first because I didn’t know how that was going to work but on my break I broke out the phone and started digging around behind the curtain.
Lo and behold, there was an option to invite someone to be an editor.
I sent him the invite, he didn’t get it, I sent it again, it wouldn’t work because WordPress didn’t like the browser he was using, he downloaded a new browser and got it going and then closed the window and couldn’t get it to come back.
Kind of a rocky start but we’ll get it straightened out here shortly.
In the mean time, I have turned the comments back on.
There will be no more of that Anonymous bullshit to hide behind.
You have to put a name and an Email address in to be able to comment.
As was expectedly shown by the trolls, getting a bogus Email is actually pretty damn easy.
That didn’t fool my ass and I banned them again anyway but if you don’t want to use your real name and/or Email address, just Google search for temporary or disposable Email addresses and you should be back in business in just a couple of minutes.
I hated to do that shit but I have been blogging for 15 years now and I’ll be damned if I am going to let some dumbass shit slingers fuck my site up.
Their stated intention was to get me shut down.
At least one of them left a little trail of blood in the snow for their trouble.
So anyway, the comments are open again, if it turns out to be too much hassle I can always turn off the Email requirement but in the mean time I’ll see how it goes.
Oh BTW, all the shit that got flung?
Oh yeah, I have a copy of all of it.
So here’s the deal, all I ask is people try to be civil.
DO NOT EVER, threaten to rape or kill anyone here. I will ban your ass so fast your head will spin.
I shouldn’t have to explain that but I am finding out that there are some people that just don’t have any common sense.
Don’t be That Guy.
Hopefully things will get back to normal around here, I could most certainly do without THE FUCKING DRAMA.
I HATE DRAMA.
There has been a small but growing group of Most Excellent folks swinging by here and I want to not only keep that, I want to expand on it.
If you have any suggestions or gripes, leave them in the comments. I do read every single one of them, even if I get too busy to reply to them.
At this point I would like to thank everyone for their continued support while all this bullshit went down. It will stop eventually. In the off chance they do manage to get this place shut down, the joke’s on them.
I have at least three more blogs just waiting and I will be back the same fucking day.
Kenny, Irish, Hank and several other bloggers will be notified and will pass on the link toot sweet.
