New Sheriff in Town

There has been warning after warning about the tone and substance of comments appearing on this site. I have now changed the settings on this blog, and no comments will appear until I have approved them.

As always, comments that challenge my writing or that of any other commenters are welcome, as long as they are civil. Those that are not will not appear. No warning, no editing, no nothing.

It's a shame that the mindless sniping of just a few commenters have made this policy necessary, but it's clearly long past due.

Enough is enough.

I agree! I have been disagreeing politely with Snodly for over a year now. I consider her a friend. Polite disagreement is the soul of what this country is based upon.

Lately I've been thinking that I'm sitting in the Cabinet room with Hamilton and Burr, instead.

Thank you Carol for all the work you do!

Well, now. I guess my comment didn't pass muster. It was a complement.

Once again, and you don't need to post this, I apologize if any of my comments led to this decision. I didn't last long in limiting my comments to just the topic at hand, but gosh, that eddy-boy cries out for mockery. I never knew the word "putz" had a definition that eddy liked to say I intended. I listed the definitions for him, but of course, he chose the most disparaging in an attempt to smear, as he does with all his posts. Perhaps you SHOULD have banned him, or even me if you hold me accountable, but personally, I don't prefer that route. Leftist lunacy needs to be highlighted, and keeping his nonsense visible does just that. Oh well. As it is your blog, I support your decision either way.

I agree, and have so noted before. While it may be fun to exchange insults it is only interesting to those involved in the exchange. I can go down to the local coffee shop if I want to hear carping and whining.

Carol's insights are thoughtful and informative and enjoyable. Notice I didn't add the requisite, "Not that I agree with everything...." When I hear that on a talk show I start to gag. Who cares if you agree or disagree, you simp, I scream.

So here is a tip, instead of writing a comment scream at the computer screen. I do it all the time.

Maybe 'wrabken' will come back now that the water in the pool will be far less, er, polluted.

I rather enjoyed debating with him, although it was sometimes hard to continue with new posts popping up so rapidly. (Carol - you are quite prolific!)

One of the things I like about being conservative is our general ability to respectfully disagree, as opposed to being run out of town on a rail i.e. what the DNC is attempting to do to Joe Lieberman even as we speak.

And BTW...Flommy and I don't disagree as much as he says !!
