Note on comments: praising Hitler is not allowed

September 2, 2010

I tolerate quite a bit in the comments section, including some pretty vicious, over-the-top attacks on myself. As I say in the About page, the comments areas are for you folks to talk. I’ll rarely get involved.

One thing I won’t tolerate, however, are comments praising Adolph Adolf Hitler and what he and his filthy cohorts did to the Jews and others. That gets the comment deleted and the author banned, immediately.

Including you, “Thomas Kale.”

EDIT: To fix an embarrassing misspelling of Der Fooey’s name.

Links update

September 15, 2009

I’ve updated the blog links to the right to remove Little Green Footballs from the list. While I agree with many of Charles Johnson’s positions*, his sneering condescension and liberal use of guilt-by-association have gotten to be more than what I want to put up with. He did great work in the Rathergate and Fauxtography scandals, but that was years ago. His recent smear of the conservative protests in DC by showing the Birchers on their fringe was a transparent attempt to slag the whole movement. It was also the last in a long series of straws. Enough is enough. There are other good blogs and news sites on the web, listed in the sidebar, and I recommend those.

*(For the record and for example, I think Intelligent Design is a fraud and that Creationism has no place in science classrooms. Contra Charles, however, I do not think Robert Spencer is anything resembling a fascist.)
